Navitas to Demonstrate GaN Technology at APEC

Navitas Semiconductor based in El Segundo, California USA, will demonstrate its GaN power IC technology at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) on March 4-8 in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. As a ‘Diamond’ APEC sponsor, Navitas will show both its own GaN (Gallium Nitride) power ICs and GaN-enabled power systems in a private demo suite and on the exhibition floor (booth #1341).

“It’s great to return to APEC as many commercial uses of GaNFast Power ICs are rapidly advancing,” said Navitas CTO and COO Dan Kinzer. “We are pleased to demonstrate how monolithic GaN integration has overcome both engineering and commercial hurdles to enable a new class of high-frequency, high-efficiency & high-density power systems.”
