Welcome to “Planet Navitas” at Premier Power Electronics Conference, APEC 2024


Navitas to showcase the path to a fully-electrified planet and 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, invites visitors to experience “Planet Navitas” and collaborate to “Electrify Our World” at APEC 2024 (Long Beach, CA, February 26th-29th, 2024).

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.”
Major technology updates and releases include GaNSafe – the world’s most-protected, most-reliable and highest-performance GaN power, Gen-4 GaNSense Half-Bridge ICs – the most integrated GaN devices, Gen-3 Fast SiC power FETs – for high-power performance, and breakthrough bi-directional GaN for game-changing motor drive and energy-storage applications.

APEC 2024 will take place at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, 300 East Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90802, with exhibition running from February 26th – 28th. “Planet Navitas” is featured at booth #1353.
