In a world conscious of the cost of wasting energy, yet relying on myriads of electrically powered devices, Gallium Nitride - a compound of Gallium and Nitrogen - is emerging as a material of choice to implement the next generation of power transistors. Thanks to their extremely fast switching and high conduction capabilities, GaN transistors push out the boundaries of power converter design in terms of achievable energy efficiency and power density.
