Wide Band Gap is no Mystery


In recent years GaN power semiconductors and GaN power electronics are mentioned in the news with revolutionary comments:“High switching speed, small size, competitive cost and high reliability give the GaN transistor the positive trajectory to broadly displace the silicon MOSFET in power conversion applications.” [1]“GaN will take over the power transistor business.” [2]“GaN delivers nearly double power density at total cost on par with silicon.” [3]
