Wise-integration, a pioneer in digital control of GaN power supplies and GaN ICs, and EDOM Technology, a leading distributor and solutions provider in Asia, today announced their new channel partnership in the field of GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, with the goal of expanding Wise-integration’s business in Asian markets.
The strategic partnership will leverage Wise-integration’s GaN power transistor and digital control capabilities, as well as EDOM’s extensive distribution network for semiconductor components and customer-support capability throughout Asia.
Gallium nitride (GaN) is a wide-bandgap, next-generation semiconductor technology that has become key in a complete power electronics offering. It operates up to 20x faster than silicon and provides up to 3x the power or 3x the charge in half the size and weight as silicon devices.
The company’s customers will also benefit from greater access to GaN products and resources globally, especially in Asia, one of the fastest-growing markets for GaN technology. In addition, Wise-integration and EDOM Technology will collaborate on innovative GaN design using Wise-integration’s WiseGan® portfolio and WiseWare® digital control.
This will provide customers with more benefits, including reduced bill of materials (BOM), easier, faster-design in, and highest performances due to digital control.
“Optimistic about the next-generation materials’ market potential of wide-bandgap semiconductors as well as the small size, high-efficiency GaN technology that Wise-integration provides, we are glad to have Wise-integration as EDOM’s new partner on expanding our power solutions, and we will bring more options and advanced solutions to our clients,” said Wayne Tseng, Chairman of EDOM Technology.
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with EDOM Technology to enable Wise-integration to accelerate its business opportunities in Asia. By combining our GaN expertise with EDOM’s capabilities, I am confident that we will be able to grow our business and help customers realize more benefits from GaN in their power-supply applications,” said Thierry Bouchet, CEO of Wise-integration.
