"Reducing Consumer Electronics’ Impacts
with Gallium Nitride (GaN) Power Semiconductors"

Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor material with characteristics that make it an excellent candidate for use in the devices used to charge mobile devices and other consumer electronics. GaN delivers more efficient AC/DC power conversion compared to traditional silicon devices, which reduces wasted energy during charging, while also significantly reducing the size and weight of the charger, decreasing life cycle environmental impacts. This presentation will be of special interest to practitioners working with consumer electronics or interested in broader electrical efficiency benefits across applications including solar energy generation, electric vehicle, and datacenter energy use.

Presenters:
