STi2GAN is STMicroelectronics’ automotive family
Meeting the needs of on-board chargers, lidar for autonomous driving, bi-directional DC/DC converters, Class-D amplifiers, and power conversion systems, STi2GaN is a family of GaN devices from STMicroelectronics.
According to ST, the family combines power and intelligence in compact, high-performance solutions required by the automotive industry as it transitions to electrified platforms.
The family combines a monolithic power stage along with drivers and protection in GaN technology as well as system-in-package (SiP) models for application-specific ICs with additional processing and control circuitry. The STi2GaN devices use ST’s novel bond-wire-free packaging technology to provide high robustness, reliability, and performance.
“STi2GaN continues ST’s long success story in compound materials and smart power product innovation, targeting mainly automotive applications and the needs of high-density, high-reliability and high-power, commented Alfio Russo, group vice president and general manager for low voltage and STI2GaN solutions, macro division, STMicroelectronics. “The new product family aims to leverage the high-power density and efficiency of GaN to offer an industry-unique range of devices in 100V and 650V clusters that ensure scalability, compactness, and outstanding performance,” he added.
STMicroelectronics develops semiconductor technologies and is an independent device manufacturer. It works with over 100,000 customers and thousands of partners to design and build products, solutions, and ecosystems, with technologies for smarter mobility, more efficient power and energy management, and the wide-scale deployment of the IoT and 5G technology.
