Thoughtful Board Design Unlocks the Promise of GaN:

Thoughtful Board Design Unlocks the Promise of GaN:

Incorporation of gallium-nitride (GaN) transistors, fabricated on inexpensive silicon substrates, represents an improvement over conventional silicon MOSFETs. The faster switching speed and lower on-resistance of GaN devices makes possible smaller devices with lower heat dissipation. Low-voltage transistors in chip-scale packaging have footprints as small as 0.9 × 0.9 mm. Thus, with thoughtful board and package design, low-voltage GaN devices can shrink the size of power bricks and modules.
