  • Product revenue was $3.2 million in the quarter, a decrease of 20% from the same quarter last year and a decrease of 11% from the prior quarter, owing to short term demand pushouts. Government revenue was $1.5 million in the quarter, an increase of 180% from the same quarter last year and flat with the prior quarter. Gross margin in the quarter was 1.6%, compared to (59.4)% in the same quarter last year and 23.4% in the prior quarter – Margins in the current quarter were impacted by a $250K Consumption tax adjustment and $170K in non-recurring scrap.
  • Raised $3.0 million through the exercise of existing warrants and $2.1 million of short-term debt.

High Power Segment Update – Continued Leadership of Transphorm in GaN

  • Increased total design-ins for higher power (300 watt – 7.5 kilowatt) to over 120 (with over 35 in production), an increase of 20% from the Company’s previous update in November 2023.
  • Announced two new SuperGaN devices in a 4-lead TO-247 package, a drop-in replacement for SiC FETs and offering a 35 mOhm and 50 mOhm on-resistance and a benefit of more efficient, switching capabilities with 25% lower energy losses in recent internal tests, increasing socket penetration opportunities with new and existing solutions.
  • Announced a collaboration with Allegro MicroSystem’s AHV85110 Isolated Gate Driver and Transphorm’s SuperGaN FETs to increase GaN power system performance for high power applications, using our just released 650V / 70 mOhm TOLL device.
  • Launched three Transphorm FETs in surface mount devices (SMD) TOLL packages supporting higher power applications for power hungry AI applications, server power, energy and industrial markets, positioning GaN as optimal devices for these kilo-watt class power hungry applications and proving its high voltage-high power dynamic reliability.
  • Launched the SuperGaN TOLT FET, the industry’s first top-sided cooled surface mount GaN device in the JEDEC-standard (MO-332) TOLT Package delivering superior thermal and electrical performance for computing, AI, energy, and automotive power systems.
  • Released two battery charger reference designs for electric vehicle (“EV”) charging applications, ideal for two- and three-wheeled EVs.
  • On track for 1200V engineering samples by middle of calendar year 2024.

Low Power Segment Update – Transphorm Enables Superior Performance

  • Increased total design-ins for power adapters and fast chargers (< 300 watt) to over 125 (with over 30 in production), an increase in ongoing design-ins of 8% from the Company’s previous update in November 2023.
  • Announced with Weltrend Semiconductor Inc., a 100-watt USB-C PD power adapter reference design, using Transphorm’s SuperGaN System-in-Package, WT7162RHUG24A, to achieve 92.7% efficiency in a Quasi-resonant flyback topology.

Primit Parikh, Transphorm’s CEO and Co-Founder, commented, “While our third quarter product revenue decreased marginally on a sequential basis, we continued to experience strong momentum in building our revenue pipeline and securing design-ins. During the third quarter, we successfully launched several new high power products and two key reference designs targeted for EV two- and three-wheeler market.”

Q3 Fiscal 2024 Financial Results

Revenue was $4.7 million for Q3 Fiscal 2024, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 6.8%, compared to $5.0 million in the prior quarter and an increase of $0.2 million, or 3.9%, compared to $4.5 million for the same period in 2022 (“Q3 Fiscal 2023”).
