Modern Distribution Grid Technologies

Industries need continuous power supply to keep their processes running. Utilities work to ensure the highest possible supply availability to their customers. While in distribution, network operators need to comply with regulation codes to ensure a stable and available supply of electricity. In all instances, the manual control of redundant systems is complex and therefore … Read more

Rad-tolerant DC/DC Converters based on GaN Improve Efficiency in Critical Applications.

In recent years, the space market has shifted toward more efficient power solutions by using previously unknown technology in space systems. Because space hardware is subjected to extreme environmental conditions, including ionizing radiation, radiation-resistant components are required. Radiation-tolerant power MOSFETs have been available for some years, but they have compromised electrical performance to attain high … Read more

Data Center Titanium Benchmarks Outperformed by a GaN-based 3kW AC/DC PSU

The huge, constantly expanding number of servers in data centers, each with central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and memory capable of storing massive amounts of data, necessitates increased power. To support this expansion, smaller, lighter, and more efficient power supply units, or PSUs, are required. The latest advances in PSUs take advantage of … Read more
