“Welcome to Planet Navitas!” at Premier Power Electronics Conference, APEC 2023


Navitas to showcase how next-gen GaN and SiC power semis address a diverse $22B/yr market, with an exciting, informative in-person experience

Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS), the only pure-play, next-generation power semiconductor company and industry leader in gallium nitride (GaN) power ICs and silicon carbide (SiC) technology, welcome visitors to “Planet Navitas” – an immediate implementation of tomorrow’s sustainable, achievable, everyday world – at APEC 2023 (Orlando, FL, March Las Vegas, NV, March 20th – 23rd, 2023).

Since its inception in 1985, the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) has become the world’s premier event in power electronics, with high-caliber, peer-reviewed technical content from industry and academia. The APEC 2016 keynote by Dan Kinzer, COO / CTO and co-founder, was the public debut for start-up Navitas and GaNFast power ICs.

Following the mission to “Electrify our World™”, the “Planet Navitas” exhibition booth invites visitors to discover how next-gen GaN and SiC technology enable the latest solutions for fully-electrified housing, transportation and industry. Examples range from TV power to home-appliance motors and compressors, EV charging, solar/micro-grid installations, and on to data center power systems. Each example highlights end-user benefits, such as increased portability, longer range, faster charging, and grid-independence, plus a focus on how low-carbon-footprint GaN and SiC technology can save over 6 Gtons/yr CO2 by 2050.

“APEC is a significant event in the power industry calendar, with an intense schedule of customer discussions on new technologies and systems,” said Mr. Kinzer. “Complementary GaNFast and GeneSiC portfolios, with comprehensive, application-specific system design support accelerates customer time-to-market with sustainable performance advantages. ‘Planet Navitas’ represents the very real, inspiring implementation of GaN & SiC across the vast $22B/year market opportunity.”

APEC 2023 will take place at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, with exhibition running from March 20th-22nd. “Planet Navitas” is featured at booth #516.
