CGD scale-ups presence at PCIM 2023


Company to unveil next generation GaN HEMT, and provide a full suite of demos

Cambridge GaN Devices (CGD) will reflect its transition from start-up to scale-up with an increased presence at PCIM 2023.

The company will unveil the next generation of its ICeGaN HEMT family, detail innovations that support dual claims concerning ease-of-use and ruggedness, and provide a full suite of demos.

Giorgia Longobardi, CEO said: “The world is eager for GaN to play a leading role in increasing sustainability in many aspects of our lives. CGD is playing a leading role in this movement, by delivering GaN devices that are the easiest to use, while at the same time, being the most rugged and reliable. PCIM is an excellent stage for CGD to prove these statements, and we encourage every visitor to challenge us with their latest designs and applications.”

Longobardi will introduce the new HEMT family with a presentation on the Exhibitor Stage on Thursday 11th May, titled: ‘CGD Introduce Next Level of Energy savings, Robustness & Reliability for 650V GaN with New ICeGaN Family of SoC Solutions’. On the CGD booth, CGD will present data from Virginia Tech other innovations that prove the ruggedness and reliability of the company’s technology. Designers will also learn how they can easily evaluate CGD’s ICeGaN HEMTs without redesigning their existing boards.

A full range of demos includes: 65W, 240 mΩ QRF evaluation board using new ICeGaN devices; active live demo of the QRF reference design connected to power meters will compare the new CGD HEMTs with those of a competitor; a 350W, 55mΩ PFC2 demo will show the levels of monolithic integration that ICeGaN permits; and a 100W PFC and QRF reference design, developed with JVD.

Andrea Bricconi, CCO said: "CGD has all the elements in place – technology, products, manufacturing, infrastructure, distribution – to ensure that we can support the burgeoning GaN market. We are ready to deliver our ICeGaN HEMTs in mass production quantities for all markets, and we are confidant that PCIM is the perfect showcase for us.”
