Digi-Key inks global deal with Navitas
Navitas Semiconductor and Digi-Key Electronics have completed a distribution agreement to provide worldwide, 24-hour availability and accelerate market penetration and revenue ramp of GaNFast power ICs. They are said to be the world’s first GaNFast power ICs to enable power systems to simultaneously achieve MHz-frequency and highest-efficiency operation.
These advances translate to smaller, faster, lighter, and lower cost power conversion in mobile fast chargers and adapters, IoT, TVs, EV/Hybrid, LED lighting and new energy solutions.
“Navitas is extremely excited to partner with Digi-Key,” said Stephen Oliver, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Navitas. “GaNFast ICs are the ideal, easy-to-use, robust, ‘digital-in, power-out’ solution and now, with Digi-Key’s best-in-class service, this technology is readily available to every power electronics designer around the world.”
The NV6113, NV6115 and NV6117 single GaNFast power ICs are 650V-rated and available in the tiny 5x6mm QFN package. A series of videos and technical papers introduces GaNFast technology, applications and end-customer examples. Product datasheets and application-specific design kits enable fast implementation for new and upgraded designs.
“Digi-Key is proud to offer the world’s first GaNFast power ICs from Navitas. Integrating the GaN gate driver, GaN FET, and GaN logic into a single package simplifies the circuit design,” said David Stein, Vice President of Global Supplier Management at Digi-Key. “Our 24/7 global support network with the integration of GaNFast power ICs will be a powerful combination to accelerate the development of a new class of power systems.”
