Cambridge GaN Devices (CGD) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Taiwan to develop high performance USB power delivery (PD) adaptors.

CGD and ITRI will develop GaN USB-PD adaptors from 140 to 240W with 30 w/in3 for e-mobility, tools, notebooks and smartphones. The CGD IceGaN technology combines the GaN power devices with the control logic to reduce the overall size of the adaptor. The company also ready has deals with companies such as Chicony.

“We are excited to partner with ITRI, an organization with a power solution research team that is very experienced in developing power solutions and holds many patents. We will be demonstrating some of their board designs at our booth at the upcoming PCIM show in Nuremberg in June. These products utilize CGD’s unique IC chip architecture and ITRI’s patented designs to achieve product size reduction, high efficiency and power density, and cost competitiveness,” said Andrea Bricconi, chief commercial officer at CGD.

“CGD’s IC-enhanced GaN – ICeGaN – is a novel platform that improves ease-of-use, facilitates smart temperature control and enhances gate reliability. We are excited to include these benefits in our new power designs,” said Wen=Tien Tsai, the leader of the commercial power design team at the Green Energy & Environment Research Laboratories (GEL) at ITRI.

GEL is one of ITRI’s largest core laboratories and has established capabilities in solid-state lighting, high-efficiency air conditioning, smart/green buildings, energy management and control systems and smart grid technologies.;
