Infineon Technologies is leading a €60mEuropean project with 45 partners developing integrated GaN power designs from the chip to the module for supply from Europe.

The ALL2GaN project aims to use artificial intelligence to strengthen sustainable industry and secure supply chains in Europe for gallium nitride (GaN) power technologies.

The three year project, working alongside the Industry 5.0 AIMS5.0 research, is focussed on integrating GaN chips in various ways. An integration toolbox, developed at Infineon’s Villach site, uses individual GaN chip elements, high-performance GaN modules, chip designs and novel system-on-chip approaches.

This is intended to provide faster integration into applications such as telecommunications, data centres and server farms with European chips. The project includes Belgian research lab and process development lab imec, Nexperia, Ballard Power Systems, EPFL, Ericsson and power supply maker Delta.

“Investments in key technologies are essential for achieving the climate targets. This can be achieved through research, cooperation with the best partners and innovations with real impact – as extrapolated here with a savings potential of 218 million tons of CO2,” said Sabine Herlitschka, CEO of Infineon Technologies Austria. With these two projects, we are doing just that. Together, we can develop sustainable products and processes faster and make a decisive contribution to decarbonization and digitization. The results strengthen industry and Europe as a location in global competition. They bring more strategic autonomy for Europe and our society, secure supply chains and are a turbo for an energy-efficient future.”

“GaN technologies are paving the way for applications that drive decarbonization. Applications such as mobile charging, data centre power supplies, residential solar inverters and onboard chargers for electric vehicles are at the tipping point,” said Adam White, Division President, Power and Sensor Systems at Infineon Technologies. “With the All2GaN research project, energy-saving chips made of gallium nitride can now be developed even faster and easily embedded in many applications thanks to the integration toolbox. The research project opens up enormous application potential and creates sustainable benefits.”
