Iniewski - these are Power GaN transistors, that is, not RF GaN devices (Eudyna/Fujitsu) - potentially a much bigger market with intense commercialization activities by compamies and countries worldwide.
There is a race to solve (to a degree) the intrinsic phenomena known as the "current collapse"
Thank you for the encouraging news. What type of products (devices and/or modules) are considered by this investment…..and in which timeframe?
Re Transphorm and 600V devices - are these transistors or diodes? Transistors may be MUCH more difficult to make.
Also are the 600V devices really GaN-on-Silicon or perhaps, as an intermittent step, SiC? Many thanks
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
