Vertical GaN on Silicon: Wide Band Gap Power at Silicon Cost

Project description

High-performance power transistor technology at low cost

Silicon has been the workhorse of power transistor technology, and it remains a cost-effective leader for many applications across all voltage ranges. However, its inherent material properties are becoming a barrier to today’s requirements for increased power densities and higher efficiencies, particularly in the fast-growing areas of electric vehicles, renewable energy and data centres. Wide band gap (WBG) semiconductor materials can overcome these limitations. The EU-funded YESvGaN project is developing innovative WBG technology utilising vertical gallium nitride transistors on low-cost substrates such as silicon that will unite enhanced performance with low cost.
