Transphorm Announces Industry-First, JEDEC-Qualified 600V GaN-on-Si Low-Profile PQFN Products

New devices include PQFN packaging and an expanded TO220-based product portfolio. Evaluation boards feature the new devices in totem-pole, LLC and all-in-one power supply circuits

GOLETA, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Transphorm Inc. today announced at APEC 2014 the industry's first 600V GaN (Gallium Nitride)-based, low-profile PQFN products and the expansion of its product portfolio in the industry-standard TO220 packages. This follows the introduction of its GaN-on-Silicon transistor family at APEC 2013 as the industry's first JEDEC-qualified 600V GaN device platform. Transphorm's 600V GaN HEMTs (high electron mobility transistors) utilize the company's patented, high-performance EZ-GaNTM technology that combines low switching and conduction losses, reducing the overall system energy dissipation up to 50% compared with using conventional silicon-based power conversion designs.

Transphorm Inc.

The new PQFN products, TPH3002LD and TPH3002LS, are offered in widely-used, low-profile PQFN88 packages and feature 290 m(Omega) RDS(on), 29 nC Qrr and low inductance for superior high-frequency switching capability. The PQFN88-packaged "LD" devices also feature a kelvin connection to better isolate the gate circuit from the high-current output circuit to further reduce EMI.

In addition, the TPH3002PD and TPH3002PS TO220-packaged 600 V GaN HEMTs have been released for use in smaller, lower power applications such as adapters and all-in-one computer power supplies. These devices also feature 290 m(Omega) RDS(on), 29 nC Qrr and high- frequency switching capability.

"Every year since 2011 we have announced new advancements of our GaN technology at this major tradeshow – and this year is no exception," said Primit Parikh, President of Transphorm. "Now by introducing the industry's first qualified 600V GaN PQFN-packaged products, we have increased the types of applications where GaN can enable dramatically more efficient, compact and low-cost solutions. This dispels the widespread misconception that GaN isn't ready for prime-time.  Once again we've shown GaN products are available today and are actually being used in a multitude of real-world applications."

The TO220-packaged TPH3002PD and TPH3002PS and the PQFN-packaged TPH3002LD and TPH3002LS are available for sale to qualified customers worldwide, directly or through Transphorm's distribution channels.

Additionally, evaluation boards are available with the 600V TO220 GaN HEMT devices in configurations for LLC DC-DC converter, totem-pole PFC and all-in-one power supply.

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyer belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are m...
Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
