High efficiency products, minimal expertise required
Transphorm designs and manufactures the highest quality, highest reliability 650 V GaN platform, yielding the only JEDEC and AEC-Q101 HV GaN transistors. The reference design delivers 99 percent efficiency using Transphorm’s 3rd generation 650 V GaN FET technology (TP65H050WS – 50 mΩ on-resistance) in an industry-preferred, robust TO-247 power package.
The TDTTP3300-RD includes all the resources required to develop products quickly without the need for deep GaN design or DSP firmware coding expertise:
“As demonstrated by customer end products, Transphorm’s high Q+R devices are proven to deliver what high-voltage GaN has always promised. Increased power density, efficiency, and performance with reduced system cost,” said Philip Zuk, Vice President of Technical Marketing, Transphorm. “Now, we are helping designers quickly capitalize on those benefits by eliminating design knowledge gaps. With our 3.3-kW reference design, we’re arming the industry with a roadmap that was several years in the making. We are excited to see what system innovations will be built upon this GaN foundation.”
