GaN Systems to show hardware innovations driving Industry 4.0 at PCIM

GaN Systems has announced that its CEO Jim Witham will deliver a keynote at PCIM Europe, the leading international exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications, in Nuremberg, Germany fromm 7-9th May 2019. Witham’s presentation, 'GaN and Industry 4.0 – A Small Change that is Revolutionising the Industry,' will be taking place Thursday 9th May 9 at 8:45am.

He will also be hosting a Q&A session following the keynote from 12:20-12:50pm at Room Mailand.

Witham will share a perspective on Industry 4.0 and how power electronics is playing a big role in breaking down the many technology challenges affecting this sector, especially the hardware innovation that needs to happen in the hundreds of millions of motors, motor drives, robots, and robotics needed in today’s industrial spaces.

Industrial use accounts for more than 40% of the world’s electricity use with two-thirds of that alone used by industrial motors. In the midst of the fourth Industrial Revolution new technology and energy requirements necessitate innovation in motor drives and robotics and in the data centers that support smart factories and facilities.

GaN is advancing this revolution by enabling smaller, higher efficiency motors and motor drives as well as smaller and higher precision robotics. Robots, as they move to the new levels of autonomy and precision needed to support industry 4.0, will greatly benefit in advancements in motors and wireless charging.
