Transphorm Inc. announced at APEC 2014 the industry's first 600V GaN (Gallium Nitride)-based, low-profile PQFN products and the expansion of its product portfolio in the TO220 packages. This follows the introduction of its GaN-on-Silicon transistor family at APEC 2013 as the industry's first JEDEC-qualified 600V GaN device platform.

Transphorm's 600V GaN HEMTs (high electron mobility transistors) utilise the company's EZ-GaNTM technology that combines low switching and conduction losses, reducing the overall system energy dissipation up to 50 per cent compared with using conventional silicon-based power conversion designs.

The new PQFN products, TPH3002LD and TPH3002LS, are offered in widely-used, low-profile PQFN88 packages and feature 290m(Omega) RDS(on), 29 nC Qrr and low inductance for high-frequency switching capability. The PQFN88-packaged "LD" devices also feature a kelvin connection to better isolate the gate circuit from the high-current output circuit to further reduce EMI.

In addition, the TPH3002PD and TPH3002PS TO220-packaged 600V GaN HEMTs have been released for use in smaller, lower power applications such as adapters and all-in-one computer power supplies. These devices also feature 290m(Omega) RDS(on), 29 nC Qrr and high- frequency switching capability.
