TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS), the only pure-play, next-generation power semiconductor company and industry leader in GaN power ICs and SiC technology, today announced that their GaNSense™ half-bridge power ICs have been awarded ‘Best-in-Show’ from Embedded Computing Design during electronica 2022.
Embedded Computing Design’s ‘Best-in-Show’ highlights the most innovative products on display at leading tradeshows, conferences, and events dedicated to Embedded, Industrial, IoT, AI/Machine Learning, Security, or Power electronics industries.
GaNSense half-bridge power ICs integrate two GaN FETs with drive, control, sensing, autonomous protection, and level-shift isolation, to create a fundamental power-stage building block for power electronics. This revolutionary single-package solution reduces component count and footprint by over 60% compared to existing discretes, which cuts system cost, size, weight, and complexity.
“Winning a ‘Best-in-Show’ award at electronica—the world’s largest electronics trade fair—is great recognition for the highly-skilled and experienced Navitas engineering teams who defined, designed and qualified the NV62xx family,” said Stephen Oliver, VP Corporate Marketing & Investor Relations. “We’ve proven the half-bridge ICs in fast charger applications, and the same products are already shipping millions of units per quarter into home-appliance motor drives, meeting the even higher requirements for reliability, and efficiency. Of course, many thanks to the Embedded judges for this award!”
GaNSense half-bridge ICs deliver the most integrated solution in the power semiconductor industry – with a 60% reduction in system component count and PCB area. GaNSense ICs offer multiple efficiency and reliability benefits in an easy-to-use, low-profile, low-inductance, industry-standard 6 x 8 mm PQFN. The NV62xx family enables fast time-to-prototype and fast time-to-revenue, and is designed to enable the next generation of soft-switching topologies and exploit GaN’s high-speed, MHz+ fast-switching capability
Navitas were presented with the ‘Best-in-Show’ award at electronica 2022 in Munich, by Rich Nass, EVP of Embedded Computing Design, and Patrick Hopper, president of OpenSystems Media.
Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS) is the only pure-play, next-generation power-semiconductor company, founded in 2014. GaNFast™ power ICs integrate gallium nitride (GaN) power and drive, with control, sensing, and protection to enable faster charging, higher power density, and greater energy savings. Complementary GeneSiC™ power devices are optimized high-power, high-voltage, and high-reliability silicon carbide (SiC) solutions.
