Transphorm at APEC 2024: SuperGaN Innovation for Low to High Power Applications

Silver Event Partner to Showcase Expanding GaN Device Portfolio and Advancements Powering Widest Range of Low to High Power Solutions from Versatile SuperGaN SiPs to Game-Changing 2- and 3-Wheeled Electric Vehicle Systems

GOLETA, Calif.—February 6, 2024—Silver Partner Transphorm, Inc. (Nasdaq: TGAN)—a global leader in robust GaN power semiconductors—announced today that its APEC 2024 showcase will underscore the company’s continued leadership in broad spectrum (low to high power) GaN power conversion. This leadership role positions Transphorm as one of the only GaN semiconductor companies making GaN’s performance advantages accessible to higher power system manufacturers. Attendees can visit Transphorm at Booth 1813 during the event on February 25 – 29.

This year, Transphorm will highlight major innovation milestones to include the industry’s first 1200 V GaN-on-Sapphire device model and leading short circuit robustness. The company’s versatile SuperGaN® device portfolio will also be emphasized—to include recently announced packages such as the TO-247-4L, TOLL, and TOLT that round out a complete, flexible packaging selection for higher power systems requiring different heatsinking configurations. Lastly, on-site demonstrations will showcase the company’s technology in a wide variety of groundbreaking power systems from high performance uninterrupted and bi-directional power supplies to disruptive solar energy microinverters as well as 2- and 3-wheeled electric vehicle systems.

Transphorm’s ability to empower customers with superior GaN solutions that outperform competitive options (i.e. e-mode GaN, SiC, silicon) stems from the future-proofed SuperGaN platform, which embraces and amplifies fundamental physics. Transphorm manufactures a normally-off d-mode GaN technology in cascode. This design configuration allows inherent platform phenomena to perform to their greatest potential. These phenomena include the 2DEG GaN HEMT Channel and the SiO2/Si gate interface (created by the low-voltage MOSFET paired with Transphorm’s GaN HEMT). The company’s recently released white paper outlining these advantages can be downloaded here: .  

One Core Platform, Crossing the Power Spectrum
Transphorm is the leading GaN power semiconductor company differentiated by its technology’s:

Manufacturability: Vertically integrated owning the EPI design, wafer process, and FET die design.

Designability: Offering well-known, industry standard packages and performance packages while partnering with renowned global leaders in firmware (Microchip Technology) and hardware integration (Weltrend Semiconductor) for easy design in.

Drivability: Offering devices that are driven like silicon and pair with off-the-shelf controllers and drivers while requiring minimal external circuitry.

Reliability: Still leading the industry with a current FIT rate of < 0.05 across more than 100 billion field hours of operation in low to high power applications.

Transphorm today supports the largest range of power conversion requirements (45 W to 10+ kW) across the widest range of power applications. The company’s FET portfolio includes 650 V and 900 V devices with 1200 V device(s) in development. These devices are JEDEC and AEC-Q101 qualified, making them optimal solutions for power adapters and computer PSUs through to broad industrial UPSs and electric vehicle mobility systems. The mix of customer products to be displayed at APEC underscore the broad usability of Transphorm’s SuperGaN platform.
