  • Understanding Key Challenges Related to PCB Layout and How to Overcome Them
  • 10 Practical Guidelines to Get the Best Operation of High-Voltage GaN Transistors

Application Note Overview 

The fast switching speed of GaN transistors results in various advantages ranging from higher efficiency to power density. It does, however, make PCB layout more challenging. For years, the standard solution has been to slow down the switching speed of power devices, coming at the cost of increased power consumption and reduced efficiency. Obviously, this solution is no longer ideal.

It is time to discuss strategies to help optimize the layout for the best overall electrical and thermal performance.
