OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada – GaN Systems announces a strategic partnership with Aveox to significantly reduce the size and weight of their 3-phase AC power converters with Active Power Factor Correction (APFC). This partnership enables the development of the world’s most power-dense, Aerospace-Compliant power conversion modules for a wide variety of cockpit, galley and cabin equipment that utilizes 3 Phase power.
Aveox’s high-efficiency power conversion modules for aerospace and defense systems are quickly becoming the go-to replacement for legacy Transformer Rectifier Units (TRUs) around the world. GaN Systems’ power devices allow the modules to be more than five times smaller than conventional units using silicon technology. GaN switches have very low losses which enable an efficiency of >97%, significantly reducing the amount of heat generated. Using compact GaNpx bottom-cooled devices, Aveox was able to combine both the semiconductor switches and surface-mounted magnetics onto a single Insulated Metal Substrate (IMS) board, making the converter smaller than before possible.
By leveraging GaN Systems and the features of GaN, Aveox delivers:
