Commented Balu Balakrishnan, chairman and CEO of Power Integrations: “Our results and forecast reflect the broad-based demand weakness and elevated supply-chain inventories cited by many of our peers this quarter. Notwithstanding the uncertain short-term outlook, our products are winning in the market, design activity remains healthy, and we are making excellent progress on growth initiatives such as EVs, efficient drivers for brushless DC motors, and our proprietary GaN technology.
“We took the next step on our GaN roadmap last month with the introduction of InnoSwitch™ ICs incorporating a 1250-volt PowiGaN™ switch. This breakthrough not only extends the efficiency benefits of GaN to a wider range of applications but also demonstrates that GaN will be a more cost-effective alternative to silicon carbide in the years ahead.”
