Panasonic’s next-gen GaN Power Solutions Now at Mouser

Panasonic next gen

Mouser Electronics announces that it is now offering gallium nitride (GaN) solutions from Panasonic. As design engineers are in search to match the modern power supply design – GaN technology can help save energy and reduce system size in a variety of industrial and consumer power-switching systems. Panasonic’s GaN solutions comprise power transistors, gate drivers, and evaluation boards that engineers can use to reduce energy loss in a variety of power applications, including power supplies, solar power inverters, motor drives, and electric vehicle (EV) devices.

Exclusive at Mouser Electronics, the modules capitalize on a GaN compound on a silicon substrate with high breakdown voltage and low conduction resistance characteristics, which enable higher-speed switching and easier miniaturization than traditional silicon devices. The PGA26E19BA GaN surface-mount (SMD) power transistor is an enhancement mode, normally off power switch with 600V blocking voltage.

Panasonic’s PGA26C09DV GaN power transistor which is said to be soon made available from Mouser — also provides 600V blocking voltage and prevents current collapse, but in a TO-220 package. Both devices boast zero recovery loss and use Panasonic’s proprietary Gate Injection Transistor technology to achieve low on-state resistance. The technology also prevents current collapse — increased on-resistance during the application of high voltage — ensuring safe operation of the GaN device at high voltages.

Mouser is also stocking Panasonic’s AN34092B high-speed gate driver, specialized for driving the SMD or TO-220 GaN transistor with minimal external components. This single-channel high-speed gate driver integrates constant source current and negative voltage circuitry and enables adjustable source current (2.5 mA to 25 mA) with an external resistor. The AN34092B gate driver provides under-voltage lockout and thermal shutdown protections as well as monitoring circuitry for VR pin voltage and negative voltage.

Additionally, Mouser Electronics is also stocking PGA26E19BA-SWEVB006 chopper evaluation board which supports the PGA26E19BA SMD transistor and AN34092B gate driver. The PGA26E19BA-SWEVB006 evaluation board provides a platform for engineers to measure the switching characteristics of the onboard PGA26E19BA transistor with enhanced performance through the AN34092B gate driver. Engineers can test the switching characteristics of the PGA26C09DV TO-220 transistor at turn-on and turn-off by using the PGA26C09DV-SWEVB001 evaluation board.
