It’s not about the devices, it’s about who will use them: “What would you do with a GaN Transistor?”
The semiconductor market is reshaping: we are experiencing more M&A in 2015 than ever, and that will soon include GaN market too. With International Rectifier acquired by Infineon, or the same Infineon signing a partnership with Panasonic, how will start-ups react. EPC Corp., Transphorm or the new French comer ExaGaN are shaking the business. GaN market’s future is unclear to everybody. Acquisitions, partnerships, licensing… everything can happen, and this report is your guide to these changes.
Why always speak about players and devices and performances, when the real question is “What would you do with a GaN transistor?”. We analyzed the market from potential user’s point of view and we have seen interesting facts. Photovoltaic inverters, UPS, Hybrid and electric cars, light electric vehicles, lighting… all these applications are said to be among the early adopters of GaN devices. We went and fetched the proofs before believing in that. This market report goes beyond the standard beliefs or GaN maker’s fairy future. As facts are held by device users; we interviewed them.
For the first time, you will get a real answer about the segments GaN will penetrate first, and there may be a few surprises.
GaN versus Silicon or GaN with Silicon?
Most competing analysis we have seen talked about how, when and how fast will GaN replace Silicon. We don’t believe in that. You remember the IGBT times? Did IGBT replaced all other technologies? Of course not. Because a new power semiconductor technology is not replacing the previous one, it’s creating new technical possibilities that allow systems to emerge, and creates new markets. Bipolar, Thyristors, GTO’s and MOSFET still have their place next to IGBT. It allowed new possibilities of conversion nobody could imagine without these new performances.
Gallium nitride is not a Silicon replacement, it’s a Silicon improvement. It will allow new possibilities we explored and will thoroughly present in this report.
