WBG Power Solutions for Data Centre Usage

23 February 2024

Cambridge GaN Devices (CGD) will be one of the exhibitors at the imminent Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) event (25th to 29th February, Long Beach, California).

Located at Stand 1553, the company will be showing visitors examples of the energy-efficient power devices it offers, based on proprietary wide bandgap (WBG) technology. There will be various demos on the CGD stand, highlighting the credentials of its 650V ICeGaN gallium-nitride (GaN) HEMT family. There will also be a 350W power factor correction (PFC)/LLC reference design employing these devices. In addition, CGD executives will be participating in the conference program. 

  -  On the 27th February, at 3:00pm local time, Andrea Bricconi (CGD’s CCO) and Peter Di Maso (CGD’s VP of Business Development for the Americas) will present ‘How ICeGaN Technology Can Address the Data Centre Challenges That Digitalisation Brings.’ 

  -  Then on the 28th February, at 9:10am local time, Nirmana Perera (CGD Application Engineer) will present ‘Evaluation of GaN HEMT dv/dt Immunity & dv/dt Induced False Turn-On Energy Loss.’

  -  Finally, on the 29th February, at 9:45am local time, Di Chen, (Director of Technical Marketing at CGD) will present ‘Monolithic Integration Addresses the Design Challenges of GaN Power Devices.’

"With data centres now demanding 100kW per rack and predicting even more in the very near future, power system designers are looking to employ GaN devices in new architectures,” states Giorgia Longobardi, CGD’s CEO. “At CGD we are addressing this challenge with new devices and reference designs which we will be discussing at APEC, along with many other applications where GaN can play a huge role in enabling sustainable electronics solutions that are more efficient, have high performance and are more compact.”
