Why GaN?

Gallium Nitride (GaN) transistors allow for

  • 3x higher power density
  • 50% lower losses
  • 4x better performance
  • 20% overall lower system cost

As the automotive industry is moving from the internal combustion engine (ICE) to a fully electric future, VisIC’s semiconductors allow the industry to extend driving ranges and lower costs at the same time.  This paradigm shift is only the beginning and we are seeing a tremendous opportunity arising over the coming decade. Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors are the technology of choice for the world’s leading automotive manufacturers, allowing for dramatically higher performance than Silicon FETs and a more affordable cost base than Silicon Carbide.

GaN transistors are physically superior to existing materials and have been developed over the last 10 years to a highly reliable transistor with high-performing packaging that produces industry-leading results.
