Global access to GaN HEMTs

Innoscience Technology has signed a global distribution agreement with WPG Holdings, giving customers access to Innoscience’s high and low voltage normally-off GaN HEMTs.

Innoscience Europe’s general manager, Dr Denis Marcon, said: “Our aim is to ensure that every power electronics designer—no matter where they are based—can benefit from the efficiency, power and size advantages that GaN technology brings. That is why we have invested in huge capacity, the largest in the world. Distribution is also a big part of our plans, and we are excited and honored to announce WPG—the world’s largest semiconductor distributor—as our first global supply chain partner.”

WPG EMEA’s VP, Nigel Watts, added: “GaN is set for explosive growth as markets including consumer, communications, automotive and industrial, experience the leap forward in end-product performance they can achieve by switching from traditional silicon-based power devices to GaN.

“Innoscience is the world’s largest 8in GaN-on-Si device manufacturer with a capacity of 10,000 8-inch wafers per month, which is set to grow to 70,000 WPM by 2025. Therefore, it is fitting that Innoscience have signed a global franchise deal with WPG.”
