MANSFIELD, Texas — Mouser Electronics, Inc. announced that it has signed an exclusive global agreement with GaN Systems to distribute its range of Gallium Nitride high power transistors. GaN Systems' goal is the easy adoption of gallium nitride by designers and systems engineers.
The GaN Systems product line, to be available from Mouser Electronics, features a range of high power, high performance Gallium Nitride transistors. Gallium Nitride is a wide bandgap semiconductor material with physical characteristics that make them superior to silicon devices for many applications including power conversion systems. Featuring exceptionally low on-resistance and negligible charge storage, these transistors enable switching efficiencies well in excess of the present silicon‑based solutions and offer dramatic benefits for switching power supply designs, inverters, hybrid and electric vehicle inverters, battery management and power factor correction.
