Richardson Electronics' Featured Technologies
Gallium Nitride technology is quickly gaining traction in a growing range of commercial and defense applications, in large part due to the high power density and high efficiency it can offer. Beginning with just a few GaN transistors in the 1990s, the GaN market has grown exponentially, with projections pushing RF GaN device revenue to nearly $560 million in 2019.
Silicon Carbide transistors, Schottky diodes and power modules offer improved efficiency and reduced system size and weight, as well as higher operating temperature, switching frequency and power density. The rapidly expanding range of SiC applications include power supplies, solar inverters, and battery-powered electric vehicles with wireless chargers such as plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs).
Silicon Germanium’s reliability, speed and low cost enabled rapid growth in wireless networks, reducing the size and power needs of WiFi, GPS, cellular phones, and more. Today’s SiGe highly-integrated core chip solutions offer the same advantages to radar and Communication Active Electronically Steerable Antenna (AESA) applications.
