When I started working with eGaN FETs almost six years ago, I had no idea what to expect from this technology. We had our first preliminary datasheet and even though I had no idea what to expect, it was obvious that, on paper, these devices were much better than your typical MOSFETs – already beyond the theoretical

No precision without feedback

Alix Paultre, Editorial Director, PSD

One of the most accurate ways to evaluate the level of advancement in a given technology is to simply measure its level of precision. This is a fair guide, as precision in tooling enables better physical performance and precision in electronic systems brings enhanced software and system operational capability.
