It entails a holistic impact across the organization, its end-users, and peer industry participants. Furthermore, it will also represent the shifting trends across the industry ecosystem.

Strategic Development

Gallium nitride (GaN) powered devices are a leap in performance, cost, and capability, the most significant opportunity for GaN technology to impact the power conversion market comes from the intrinsic ability to integrate multiple devices on the same substrate. A single chip is more straightforward, more inefficient, and more cost-effective.

Strategic Alignment

Navitas Semiconductor is partnering with Dell, Lenovo, and Xiaomi, and is Manufacturing GaNFast power ICs with zero errors to companies including demonstrating the potential for this technology in modern charging applications.

Immediate Impact

Gallium nitride semiconductors are next-generation semiconductor technologies that are 20x faster than legacy silicon and enable up to 3x more power or 3x faster charging in half the size and weight. It can be used in fast charging of devices.

Budding Growth Opportunities for End-Users

This technology can be used in all modern devices and can help in disrupting the battery-running devices market.

Potential Advancements for Peer Markets

Gallium nitride technology is expected to witness significant demand in the healthcare sector. The hospitals are increasingly depending on the robots equipped with gallium nitride components to conduct delicate surgeries. In addition, scanning equipment, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), sonograms, and miniaturized x-ray machines, among others use GaN-based semiconductor components, owing to their precise positioning capabilities that are helpful in performing surgeries. Moreover, gallium nitride is expected to replace silicon in medical equipment such as artificial heart pumps, nerve-muscle simulators, and devices that require charging.

Shifting Industry Trends

Gallium Nitride (GaN) based semiconductors possess dynamic electrical properties, such as high thermal conduction, large electric field, higher saturation velocity, and high-breakdown voltage that make them the appropriate choice for use in a variety of switching devices. Moreover, GaN power semiconductors help reduce switching and conduction losses, thereby improving the efficiency of electronic systems which has further propelled the growth of the market.
