Digi-Key offers Transphorm’s GaN FETs

Gallium nitride (GaN) FETs produced by Transphorm in standard TO-xxx through- hole and PQFN88 surface mount packaging, are available for immediate shipment from components distributor, Digi-Key Electronics.

The semiconductor company is believed to offer the industry’s only JEDEC-qualified GaN FETs for high-voltage power conversion applications. Its portfolio includes 600  and 650V discretes for power levels up to 4.5kW.

Depletion-mode, high-voltage GaN FETs are coupled with a standard, low-voltage silicon (Si) MOSFET, creating a hybrid cascode switch. These devices operate as normally-off and are compatible with off-the-shelf Si drivers.

GaN provides higher performance, higher power density, and overall lower system cost. The GaN FETs allow engineers and designers to develop power switching applications to take advantage of the high performance capabilities of GaN.
