Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xgplzf/power_gan_market)
has announced the addition of the "Power
GaN Market 2014" report to their offering.
80% ANNUAL GROWTH FROM 2016-2020!
Overall, 2020 could see an estimated device market size of almost $600M,
leading to approximately 580,000 x 6 wafers to be processed. Ramp-up
will be quite impressive starting in 2016, at an estimated 80% CAGR
through 2020, based upon a scenario where EV/HEV begins adopting GaN in
The power supply/PFC segment will dominate the business from 2015-2018,
ultimately representing 50% of device sales. At that point, automotive
will then catch-up.
In UPS applications, the medium-power segment is likely to be very much
in line with the GaN value proposition, and savings at system level will
be demonstrated. We think GaN technology could grab up to 15% of market
share in this field by 2020.
Room for extra cost in motor drive applications is unlikely. Therefore,
the incentives to implement new technologies such as GaN have to be
serious and strong. Considering the possible improvement of conversion
efficiency, and augmented by a predictable price parity with Si
solutions by 2018, we expect GaN to start being implemented at a slow
rate in motor control by 2015-2016, and reach around $45M in revenue by
The PV inverters segment has already adopted SiC technology, and
products are now commercially available. It's possible that GaN could
partially displace SiC thanks to better price positioning. However, now
that SiC is in place, qualifying GaN may be more challenging.
This report illustrates the full coverage of GaN device market data,
split by application and through 2020.
KEY FEATURES OF THE REPORT

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application.
“Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
