Scallable COntroller for Power Sources

Project description

GaN transistors go to space

Gallium nitride (GaN) transistors have a variety of applications, from electric vehicles to phone chargers. They can also be used to power applications needed to support space missions. However, GaN transistors are not without challenges. To enable a new generation of power converters in space, GaN devices need to be specifically designed. The EU-funded SCOPS project will design and evaluate the performance in space of an application-specific integrated circuit. The aim is to control several power supply phases in parallel using a non-dependent supply chain. To do so, SCOPS will provide the space community with a flexible circuit that can overcome the limitations of existing controllers in terms of phase paralleling possibilities, performance, features and radiation robustness.
