New portfolios from TI push the limits of power design further, help engineers achieve industry-leading power density

15.04. 2024 | News

Texas Instruments introduced two new power conversion device portfolios to help engineers achieve more power in smaller spaces, providing the highest power density at a lower cost. TI's new 100V integrated gallium nitride (GaN) power stages feature thermally enhanced dual-side cooled package technology to simplify thermal designs and achieve the highest power density in mid-voltage applications at more than 1.5kW/in3. TI's new 1.5W isolated DC/DC modules with integrated transformers are the industry's smallest and most power-dense, helping engineers shrink the isolated bias power-supply size in automotive and industrial systems by over 89%.

With TI's new 100V GaN power stages, LMG2100R044 and LMG3100R017, designers can reduce power-supply solution size for mid-voltage applications by more than 40% and achieve industry-leading power density of over 1.5kW/in3, enabled by GaN technology's higher switching frequencies. The new portfolio also reduces switching power losses by 50% compared to silicon-based solutions, while achieving 98% or higher system efficiency given the lower output capacitance and lower gate-drive losses. In a solar inverter system, for example, higher density and efficiency enables the same panel to store and produce more power while decreasing the size of the overall microinverter system (more info).
