GaN Systems Shows Why GaN is a Game Changer at PCIM 2020

OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, June 30, 2020 – GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, announced today its participation at “PCIM Europe Digital Days,” taking place July 7–8, 2020. CEO Jim Witham will participate in two panel sessions, “GaN Devices – The Game-Changers” and “Power GaN: Past-Present-Future,” illustrating how GaN power semiconductors are becoming the fundamental building block in power electronics. Furthermore, technical experts from the company will present papers that are top-of-mind in GaN at the event. Additionally, the company will be showcasing its latest solutions, design tools, and feature exceptional products by companies that have gained advantage with GaN Systems in the consumer, industrial, automotive, and data center industries at its Virtual Experience site.

“While it will be a different PCIM Europe this year, the global power electronics community will once again converge to exchange knowledge and ideas on trends and technologies shaping our industry,” says Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. “We look forward to participating in the discussions and highlight how GaN is establishing itself as a preferred solution.”
