STMicroelectronics Releases High-Performance Automotive-Grade GaN Product Family

China, May 13, 2021 – STMicroelectronics (ST; NYSE: STM), a global leader in semiconductors serving multiple Electronic applications, has released the STi2GaN family of smart integrated gallium nitride (GaN) solutions . STi2GaN is an innovative product unique in the market that integrates power stages and smart circuits in a compact, high-performance solution to meet the needs of the automotive industry in the megatrend of electrification.

Based on ST’s extensive R&D experience in automotive applications, leading advantages and innovations in smart power technology, wide-bandgap semiconductor materials, and packaging technology, the STi2GaN series uses GaN technology to monolithically integrate power stages, drive and protection circuits, and integrate the power stage and drive and protection circuits through the system. In-package (SiP) solutions add data processing and control circuitry to meet market demand for special-purpose chips. The STi2GaN solution utilizes ST’s new leadless packaging technology to improve the stability, reliability and performance of the chip.

Alfio Russo, Vice President of STMicroelectronics Products Division and General Manager of the Low Voltage and STi2GaN Solutions Division, said: “STi2GaN continues ST’s long-standing success in innovation in composite materials and smart power products for key applications including automotive and applications requiring high density, High-reliability and high-power power supplies. The pioneering portfolio of STi2GaN solutions is suitable for on-board chargers, LiDAR for autonomous driving, bidirectional DC-DC (DC-DC) converters, Class D amplifiers and power conversion systems. The new family of products is designed to take advantage of the high power density and energy efficiency of GaN technology to provide the market with a unique range of scalable, compact, high-performance 100V and 650V products.”
