GaN Systems Geoff Haynes Future Power Challenge

GaN transistors make better candidates than Si transistors in high frequency high power applications, due to their improved switching speeds, low gate driving power requirements and low conduction losses. The GaN Systems Geoff Haynes Future Power Challenge encourages the attendees of the PG Summer School 2016 to include GaN Systems transistors in their research and present their results at the School. Projects are eligible for the Challenge if they clearly identify performances in applications that would not be achieved without GaN transistors. A panel of academic and industrial experts will judge the Challenge entries and a prize will be awarded at the Annual Conference for the EPSRC Centre of Power Electronics.  To register your interest for this, please contact as soon as possible.

Registration for this event is now closed.

Accommodation is offered on-site at The National College, for up-to-date pricing and availability please call 0115 982 9297.
