Gartner Names GaN Systems A 'Cool Vendor'


Report says "viable emerging power and energy-related technologies are improving the return on investment across multiple digital initiatives, including edge data centres, mobile robots and electric transport"

GaN Systems has been recognised as a Cool Vendor in the May 2020 'Cool Vendors in Technology Innovation Through Power and Energy Electronics' report by Gartner, a research and advisory company. According to the report, "this research outlines four technologies from emerging providers whose innovations, being foundational, offer significant savings across electrical use cases with growing customer success."

In its report, some of Gartner's key findings include "viable emerging power and energy-related technologies are improving the return on investment across multiple digital initiatives, including edge data centres, mobile robots and electric transport" and "the benefits of these power and energy innovations go beyond savings in the electricity bill and include broader OPEX, CAPEX, size (power density), safety and reliability improvements."

GaN Systems products are used in a variety of applications ranging from the smallest and lightest USB-C mobile phone and laptop PC chargers, to high reliability industrial motor drives, to electric vehicles, both passenger and high-performance racing. GaN Systems' customers are being disruptive in their markets and taking leadership positions with the use of GaN power transistors.

"We are honoured to be named a Cool Vendor by Gartner and consider this another significant confirmation of our vision and unique position in the marketplace," said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. "GaN Systems is committed to not only developing new and disruptive technologies that transform the power semiconductor marketplace, but also in playing a major role in assisting established power and energy conversion companies to better understand the advantages of embracing GaN. Our focus is on ensuring the power transistor products we provide today meet the needs of our customer's innovations."
