Navitas Semiconductor invites visitors to experience “Planet Navitas” and collaborate to “Electrify Our World” at APEC 2024 (Long Beach, CA, February 26th-29th, 2024).

Since its inception in 1985, the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) has become the world’s premier event in power electronics, with high-caliber, peer-reviewed technical content from industry and academia. The APEC 2016 keynote by Dan Kinzer, COO / CTO and co-founder, was the public debut for start-up Navitas and GaNFast power ICs.

Following the mission to “Electrify our World™”, the “Planet Navitas” exhibition booth invites visitors to discover how next-gen GaN and SiC technology enable the latest solutions for fully-electrified housing, transportation and industry. Examples range from TV power to home-appliance motors and compressors, EV charging, solar/micro-grid installations, and on to data center power systems. Each example highlights end-user benefits, such as increased portability, longer range, faster charging, and grid-independence, plus a focus on how low-carbon-footprint GaN and SiC technology can save over 6 Gtons/yr CO2 by 2050.

“APEC is a significant event in the power industry calendar, with an intense schedule of customer discussions on new technologies and systems,” said Mr. Kinzer. “Complementary GaNFast™ and GeneSiC™ portfolios, with comprehensive, application-specific system design support accelerates customer time-to-market with sustainable performance advantages. ‘Planet Navitas’ represents the very real, inspiring implementation of GaN & SiC across the vast $22B/year market opportunity.”

Major technology updates and releases include GaNSafe – the world’s most-protected, most-reliable and highest-performance GaN power, Gen-4 GaNSense Half-Bridge ICs – the most integrated GaN devices, Gen-3 Fast SiC power FETs – for high-power performance, and breakthrough bi-directional GaN for game-changing motor drive and energy-storage applications.

APEC 2024 will take place at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, 300 East Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90802, with exhibition running from February 26th – 28th. “Planet Navitas” is featured at booth #1353.
