Panasonic introduced power management solutions for industrial and automotive applications
Panasonic's withstand voltage of 600V GaN power device, "X-GaN(TM)" enables size reduction and improves efficiency of power conversion systems. Employing a proprietary structure, the X-GaN power device has successfully overcome challenges that GaN power devices have faced in the past. X-GaN achieved normally-off characteristics and are current collapse free, dramatically improving the reliability of GaN power devices.
Panasonic showcased industrial subsystems that can take full advantage of X-GaN's high performance such as X-GaN compact inverter and DCDC converter with X-GaN, as well as application demos and evaluation kit for checking X-GaN performance.
