Application of GaN-on-Silicon Technology in Advanced Power Conversion Systems Used in Space
Speakers: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder, EPC
Enhancement-mode GaN-on-Si (eGaN) FETs have showed superior performance and demonstrated their ability to operate reliably under harsh environmental conditions and high radiation conditions. In this discussion we will present the state-of-the-art in enhancement mode GaN HEMT transistors and monolithic integrated circuits designed for higher frequency operation. We will also show recent testing of these devices under various radiation exposure conditions that demonstrate the robustness of this technology in harsh space environments.
