GaN Power Devices: Potential, Benefits, and Keys to Successful Use

By Bill Schweber for Mouser Electronics For well over a decade, industry experts and analysts have been predicting that viable power-switching devices based on gallium nitride (GaN) technology were “just around the corner.” These GaN-based switches would offer greater efficiency, power handling,…
