In this video, we discuss how GaN increases power density and the benefits of using GaN power transistors in power supplies. Gallium nitride (GaN) is a wide bandgap semiconductor material that offers several performance advantages over silicon when used in power transistors. GaN transistors have lower conduction and switching losses, faster switching, and better thermal conductivity than silicon. This enables smaller transformers, inductors, and capacitors, resulting in increased power density.
