Webinar: Gallium Nitride (GaN) in Space
Presenter: Shengke Zhang, Ph.D., Manager of Failure Analysis at EPC
Gallium nitride devices offer dramatically improved performance over the aging Rad Hard silicon MOSFET, enabling a new generation of power converters in space operating at higher frequencies, higher efficiencies, and greater power densities than ever achievable before. In this webinar we will explain why enhancement-mode GaN (eGaN) devices exhibit such superior radiation tolerance compared with silicon MOSFETs. Next, we will explore some of the failure mechanisms in GaN and how they impact radiation performance. We will then show how superior is the electrical performance of eGaN transistors compared with the most popular Rad Hard MOSFETs. Lastly, we will discuss some spaceborne systems where GaN is enabling higher radiation and system performance compared to silicon solutions.
