GaN Reliability and Lifetime Projections

Keynote Speaker: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Efficient Power Conversion

The rapid adoption of GaN devices in many diverse applications calls for continued accumulation of reliability statistics and research into the fundamental physics of failure in GaN devices. Alex Lidow will speak about the strategy used to measure and predict lifetime based upon tests that force devices to fail under a variety of conditions. This information can be used to create stronger and higher performance products for the industry.

Power Design with GaN for Space Apps: Q&A with EPC CEO Alex Lidow

537

Written by:

Unlike silicon, requiring custom manufacturing processes and packaging to insulate semiconductors from radiation effects, gallium nitride (GaN) devices are largely resistant to damage caused by radiation due to physical characteristics and structure.

Those attributes can be leveraged in the design of satellites. Orbiting electronics must withstand the effects of gamma rays, neutrons and heavy ions. Protons make up 85 percent of space radiation, while heavier nuclei make up the remainder. Radiation can deteriorate, interrupt knock out satellite electronic components.
