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
