GaN Systems’ transistors used in SolPad’s FlexGrid solar power inverter https://t.co/x2f2Ts4n4w

GaN Systems’ transistors used in SolPad’s FlexGrid solar power inverter GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – a fabless developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications – says that its transistors are being used by power inverter design engineers to increase power efficiency and to reduce inverter size and weight. In particular, SolPad (which designs sustainable personalized energy systems that integrate solar power conversion with battery storage) is using GaN Systems’ 650V GaN transistors in its FlexGrid inverter. Using an intelligent design capable of compensating for diverse power environments, the FlexGrid inverter is integrated into two devices, SolPad Home and SolPad Mobile, creating a new range of ‘smart energy’ products. SolPad Home is a built-in ‘solar micro-storage’ system that can power...
