According to estimations, GaN transistors could feature up to 50 percent lower losses than conventional silicon-based devices. In the context of the Power GaN Plus research project, automotive supplier Robert Bosch GmbH will develop and evaluate a high-power converter unit for electrical vehicles. Other companies involved into the research project are IXYS Semiconductor, United Monolithic Semiconductors, the Ferdinand Braun Institute for High Frequency Technology, as well as the Universities RWTH (Aachen) and Erlangen.

With its high efficiency, Gallium Nitride is also an interesting material for the photovoltaics industry. For this reason, KACO New Energy GmbH will develop an GaN-based inverter for photovoltaic environments, characterized by low voltages and relatively high currents.

The research project is funded in part by the German research ministry (BMBF) within the scope the IKT2020 program. The total budget of the project is 2.8 million euros. Results can be expected in three years, the group said in a statement.
