Mouser Electronics and Transphorm sign new global distribution deal

Compound semiconductors have become the focus of development in the past few years as semiconductor engineers have worked hard to obtain the next better device. Among these, GaN has gained prominence as it can be well suited for high voltage conversion, including applications like electric vehicle drives, solid-state lighting and eventually higher power distribution, traction and transmission markets.

Transphorm Inc., design and manufacturing leader of high-voltage Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors, reportedly announced that it has inked a global distribution deal with Mouser Electronics, Inc, a renowned, authorized distributor with newest electronic components and semiconductors.

According to the agreement, Mouser would offer Transphorm’s AEC-Q101- and JEDEC- qualified GaN FETs and evaluation tools.

As of today, Mouser Electronics offers devices from Transphorm’s 650 V TO-247 as well as TO-220 and 900 V TO-220 GaN FETs. These devices feature lower crossover losses, decreased gate charge as well as a reverse recovery charge that is smaller, providing similar field dependability as silicon carbide FETs and enhanced performance when compared with silicon MOSFETs.

Transphorm’s FETs offer highest threshold voltage in the market at 4 V as well as a gate robustness rating of ±20 V in comparison to competitive GaN transistors.

Transphorm’s automotive-qualified GaN FETs are also available including TPH3205WSBQA, the first GaN solution of industry to have AEC-Q101 qualification as well as TP65H035WSQA, the first 175°C rated AEC-Q101-qualified equipment in the market.

In-vehicle power systems utilizing the 650 V GaN FETs could obtain more power density of up to 40% while decreasing overall system costs approximately by 20% when compared with silicon-based solutions that are similar in nature.

A week ago, Transphorm announced addition of two more GaN FETs to Gen III Product Line that correspond to High Voltage GaN Functionality in a wide array of applications.

Mouser has Transphorm’s evaluation platforms, which enables designers to learn efficiency and switching characteristics. The Transphorm kits support various power system topologies, which include inverters, bridgeless totem pole PFC as well as half-bridge boost or buck.

These kits cover a variety of load capacities. Few examples are its 2.5 kW and 4 kW bridgeless totem pole PFC and 1.2 kW and 2.5 kW half-bridge evaluation platforms.
