Many nations have mandated the phase-out of internal combustion engines in the coming decades to meet global greenhouse gas reduction targets. Electric vehicle (EV) performance can be optimized by utilizing advanced design and simulation tools that save manufacturers time and money.

Advanced semiconductors now support previously unattainable efficiency and power density. But these devices place high demands on test and measurement (T&M) equipment; oscilloscopes with isolated input channels are ideal solutions with wide-ranging analytical abilities.

Imec and UTAC have developed a unique process for the wafer thinning and backside metallization of highly stressed GaN-on-200 mm silicon wafers.
This has resulted in a packaged 650 V GaN device â€“ smaller than state-of-the-art. Stefaan Decoutere, Program Director GaN Power Electronics at imec and Nicolo Ronchi, Researcher at imec explains the process.
