GaN Systems and Converter Technology reach strategic agreement


Partnership to work to advance adoption of new GaN application

Ottawa-based GaN Systems, developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, has reached a joint strategic agreement with UK- based Converter Technology to advance adoption of new GaN applications. Converter Technology specialises in providing design consultancy and hardware prototyping services. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will work directly to develop application notes, reference designs, training material, and cutting-edge technology demonstrators to accelerate the commercialisation of GaN Systems' unique technology. Working with customers, the companies will develop new applications where the performance of GaN Systems' switches and other devices will deliver maximum impact. To support the adoption of the new applications, GaN Systems and Converter Technology will promote industry engagement, and demonstrate key benefits to GaN Systems' customers. This will further accelerate the adoption of GaN System's technology into the next generation of power conversion systems in a power devices market worth $14-billion. The Company's patented power-switch technology promises new levels of performance with advantages of size, weight, cost, and efficiency. "Dr. Mosely's deep roots in power system design, his strong customer relationships and the company's excellent test and analysis capabilities make this an ideal catalyst to accelerate the adoption of GaN power switches," said Geoff Haynes, VP business development of GaN Systems. "We expect this relationship to become a model for local customer support for our components across the globe." GaN Systems Converter Technology Ltd
