200V enhancement mode p-GaN gate power HMET. It is available in different dimensions as per the different current requirement of the device.

GaN Power HEMT Discrete Device

Among the wide band gap (WBG) components, GaN HEMT devices are gaining more attention due to its intrinsic benefits such as high switching speed, high breakdown voltage, high thermal conductivity, and low on-resistance. These devices offer a great advantage in downsizing the power electronics circuits. Imec has a platform available for processing state-of-the art discrete p-GaN power switches, and beyond state-of-the-art co-integrated power switches. Discrete p-GaN gate power switches are fabricated on GaN-on-SOI technology. Our p-GaN technology is offering comparable performance to available industrial alternatives. Datasheet of the 36mm power device is shown below.
