Israel’s VisIC Technologies, a global leader in gallium nitride (GaN) solutions for high-voltage automotive applications, and KYOCERA AVX Salzburg, a leading international manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components for the automotive industry with sites production sites in North America, China and Europe, have announced the extension of their collaboration.

The two partners combine their strengths in packaging, assembly and GaN wafer technologies with the aim of providing high-current components for high-voltage applications such as charging and electronic transmission.

The expansion of the collaboration aims to meet the automotive industry’s demand for reliable and highly efficient power solutions that will reduce the costs of electric vehicles. With the best thermal resistance, discrete GaN devices and half-bridge modules will be essential for future on-board chargers (OBCs) and traction inverters, optimizing weight, size, cost and battery life.

“The electrification of the automotive industry has generated significant demand for power components, which we expect to continue strong growth for the next decade,” said Ran Klier, SVP of Sales and Marketing at VisIC Technologies.

VisIC’s D3GaN technology was developed for the automotive industry’s high reliability standards and lowest losses. It also simplifies the system solution and enables highly efficient and affordable powertrain platform solutions. These benefits have been well received by the premium automotive customers that VisIC Technologies has worked with over the past few years.

“Gallium nitride semiconductors are the key to improving the efficiency and increasing the range of electrified vehicles. This technology provides significantly higher switching speed and smaller, lighter packages, which reduces total system cost,” says Martin Knosp, Product Line Manager at KYOCERA AVX Salzburg.

“We are pleased to expand our cooperation with VisIC Technologies, leveraging our advanced design and manufacturing capabilities to create more GaN products and devices to better meet the demands of the booming EV market. »
