Simplify your simulated GaN designs with LTSpice model

Simplify your simulated GaN designs with LTSpice model
  Prior to building hardware, power system design engineers want to be fast, accurate and confident with their simulated designs. Achieving these goals with GaN designs has become easier with GaN Systems’ new set of LTSpice models. Increasing efficiency and power density requires proper layout and understanding of the characteristics of these fast transistors.

GaN transistors save cost and increase efficiency

GaN transistors save cost and increase efficiency
Power densities are increasing three times or more in many applications as the demand for more power in electronics continues to increase, while the space allowable for power continues to decrease. This increase in power has the collateral effect of producing more heat. More heat traditionally results in the use of higher capacity fans and bigger heat sinks to prevent overheating of the electronic components and system failure.
