Navitas signs Richardson to distribute SiC chips
Partnership for GeneSiC devices targets renewable energy, industrial, medical, transportation, and energy storage
GaN and SiC chip company Navitas Semiconductor has announced a distribution agreement with Richardson Electronics, Ltd. covering next-generation SiC power semiconductors for the Americas.
Richardson Electronics will focus on Navitas’ GeneSiC power MOSFETs and MPS diodes that are rated from 650 V – 6.5 kV. Patented trench-assisted planar-gate technology delivers the lowest RDS(ON) at high temperature and the lowest energy losses at high speeds.
Devices in the GeneSiC portfolio, which includes over 100 parts, are suitable for renewable energy and storage, motor drives, induction heating and welding, battery charging, automotive, and high voltage DC-DC conversion.
Ranbir Singh, executive VP at Navitas said:“GeneSiC MOSFETs and MPS diodes are a perfect fit for Richardson's market strongholds of renewable energy, industrial, medical, transportation, and energy storage.”
“Adding Navitas as a key technology partner is an excellent addition to supporting our customers’ needs,” said Greg Peloquin, executive VP and general manager Power Microwave and Green Energy Solutions Group. “Their products are world class and – provide disruptive technology to our customers looking for superb hard-switching components with excellent lead-times.”
