Power Electronics: 6 Things You Need To Know About GaN

Electronics
GaN is a type of transistor that is used in high-power applications such as electric vehicles, inverters, and flywheels. They're also known for their ability to be operated at high temperatures and for lasting much longer than other types of power transistors. Keep reading to learn six things you need to know about GaN transistors! 1. What They Are GaN is made out of gallium nitride, hence the prefix 'GaN.' ¬†They have a higher switching speed, a higher temperature threshold, and higher current density than both of these types. GaN Power Transistors¬†boast several superiorities to other types of high-power semiconductors such as silicon and silicon carbide. They also boast increased power handling capabilities, which means that their size can be reduced compared to other high-power transistors without compromising on the…
