Panasonic Announces Smallest Normally-off 600V GaN Package
Panasonic is launching what it believes is the industry's smallest enhancement-mode GaN power transistor package - an 8x8 dual-flat no-lead surface-mount package measuring 8 x 8 x 1.25mm.
The breakdown voltage of the transistors is 600V in an enhancement mode, and the products have achieved a high-speed switching of 200V/ns and a low on-resistance of 54 to 154mÎ©, according to the company.
The company will ship product samples, 10A type (PGA26E19BV) and 15A type (PGA26E08BV), in July 2015.The products will be exhibited at Power Conversion Intelligent Motion 2015 (PCIM 2015) in Nurnberg, Germany from May 19 to 21, 2015.
