Mouser Electronics signs global distribution agreement with Navitas Semiconductor 

Distributor, Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Navitas Semiconductor, the GaN power IC and SiC technology company.

The agreement means that Mouser will offer customers Navitas’ range of GaNFast and GaNSense power ICs, in addition to the GeneSiC range of SiC power MOSFETs and diodes. The efficient semiconductors enable high-frequency performance for applications including electric vehicles, fast charging devices, consumer electronics, alternative energy and industrial solutions.

“Mouser is pleased to add this strong industry leader to our line card, and to deliver these innovative power devices to our customers,” said Kristin Schuetter, Mouser’s vice president of supplier management.

“Adding GaNFast parts to the existing GeneSiC portfolio greatly amplifies the awareness, interest and ultimately revenue for Navitas via Mouser’s established and successful distribution platform,” said David Carroll, senior vice president worldwide sales at Navitas Semiconductor. He expects power designers to quickly deliver high-quality prototypes with both SiC and GaN, on time and ready for mass production.

The GaNFast Power ICs enable switching frequencies six-times higher than discrete GaN solutions, enabling an increase in system energy savings, while reducing system size and weight, said Mouser. GaNFast power ICs are easy to use and compatible with a range of popular topologies and controllers. GaNFast power ICs monolithically integrate GaN power, drive, and control, to create an easy-to-use, high speed, high performance ‘digital-in, power-out’ building block. GaNFast power ICs enable up to three times faster charging in half the size and weight of old, silicon-based power electronics, or three times more power without a size or weight increase.

GaNFast Power ICs with GaNSense technology integrate critical, real-time, autonomous sensing and protection circuits which further improve Navitas’ industry-leading reliability and robustness. These single-package solutions reduce component count and footprint compared to existing discretes, which cuts system cost, size, weight, and complexity. The GaNFast power ICs are available with a supply voltage range of 5.5 to 24V, suitable for a variety of consumer and enterprise applications.

The GaNFast family of power ICs are available in low profile, low inductance, industry-standard PQFN packages. These devices enable fast time-to-prototype and fast time-to-revenue and are designed to enable the next generation of soft-switching topologies capitalising on GaN’s high-speed, MHz+ fast-switching capability, said Mouser. These high-efficiency devices are suitable for mobile and data centre applications, as well as industrial motor drives, explained the company.
