Infineon To Start Volume Production Of CoolGaN


Technology's predicted lifetime is about 55 years, says company

Infineon is starting volume production for CoolGaN products by the end of 2018, the company announced during PCIM Europe. Engineering samples of the high reliable GaN solution in the market are available now.

Infineon's CoolGaN is claimed to the one of most reliable and globally qualified GaN solutions in the market. During the quality management process not only the device is tested, but also its behaviour in the application.

At 100 ppm (parts per million), its predicted lifetime is about 55 years, exceeding the expected lifespan by 40 years. CoolGaN enables for example doubled output power in a given energy storage slot size, freeing up space and realising higher efficiency at the same time.

Full production of CoolGaN 400 V and 600 V e-mode HEMTs will start by end of 2018. CoolGaN 400 V will be available in 70 mΩ in SMD bottom-side cooled TO-leadless and top-side cooled DSO-20-87 package. CoolGaN 600 V comes in top-side cooled DSO-20-87 package and bottom-side cooled DSO-20-85. With 70 mΩ and 190 mΩ 600V CoolGaN devices in bottom-side cooled TO-leadless and DFN 8x8 packages, the 600V CoolGaN portfolio will be complemented.
