Transphorm introduces second 900 V GaN FET for threephase applications

first_imgSource: Electric Vehicles Magazine Transphorm,a provider of Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors, has introduced its second 900V Field-Effect Transistor (FET), the Gen III TP90H050WS. Transphorm’s devices nowenable three-phase industrial systems and higher voltage automotive electronicsto use GaN.The FET has a typical on-resistance of 50 mOhm with a 1000 Vtransient rating, offered in a standard TO-247 package. It can reach powerlevels of 8 kW in a typical half bridge while maintaining greater than 99% efficiencies.Transphorm says the FET’s figures of merit for Ron*Qoss (resonant switchingtopologies) and Ron*Qrr (hard switching bridge topologies) are two to fivetimes less than those of common superjunction technologies in production, indicatinghighly reduced switching losses.The new FET is designed to be deployed in bridgelesstotem-pole power factor correction (PFC), half-bridge configurations used in DCto DC converters and inverters. Transphorm says the FET’s ability to supportthese topologies at a higher voltage expands the company’s reach to include three-phaseindustrial applications, including EV chargers at higher battery voltage nodes.Transporm plans to introduce a JEDEC-qualified version in Q12020. Transphorm’s first 900 V device, the TP90H180PS, with a typicalon-resistance of 170 mOhm in a TO-220 package is JEDEC qualified and has beenavailable through Digi-Key since 2017.“Transphorm’s latest 900 V GaN product represents a majormilestone for commercial GaN power transistors as it reaches the 1 kilovoltmark, an industry first. This paves the way for GaN to be a viable choice atthese higher voltage nodes,” said Transphorm COO Primit Parikh. “With partialfunding from ARPA-E for early risk reduction and Power America for initialproduct qualification, this effort represents successful public-privatepartnership that accelerates GaN’s market adoption.”Source: Transphorm Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on July 9, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
