Award List:

Planar, High Frequency, Power Conversion Device Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UC Santa Barbara
Principal Investigator: Robert Coffie, Manager, Device Engineering
Award Amount: $69,986.00
RI Contact: Steven DenBaars
Abstract:
Transphorm proposes to demonstrate a normally off fast high voltage Gallium Nitride power switch solution. The switch would block to 1000V, have a threshold voltage greater than 2.5 V, and the phase I switch will target an on resistance less than 20 ohm-mm. To accomplish these targets, Transphorm… More
