Transphorm flyerHigh voltage GaN HEMT developed for the high frequency operation in a low-inductance source terminal TO220 package

The TPH3002PS is a 600V EZ-GaN™ HEMT for high frequency operations from Transphorm. Manufactured by Fujitsu and assembled in a TO220 package, it features the Quiet-TabTM scheme which increases switching speed by 200%. With a 7.5ns turn-on and a 10ns turn-off, the TPH3002PS has a higher switch frequency than the best CoolMOS.

The TPH3002PS is based on a cascode configuration of a GaN on Silicon HEMT transistor to hold the high voltage and a standard low voltage MOSFET to drive high frequency and to make a normally-off transistor from a normally-on GaN HEMT.

The device is assembled in a TO220 package for an easy integration in converter electronic system. Moreover, it integrates a Quiet-Tab™ and a Gate-Source-Drain (GSD) pin-out arrangement in order to reduce the parasitic inductance and capacitance in high frequency and to allow 200% increase in switching speed compared to traditional TO-220.

The report presents a deep technology analysis of the packaging and the components with TEM images of the complex GaN epitaxy layer stack and transistor structure.
It also includes production cost analysis and overall comparison with GaN Systems GS66508P 650V HEMT.

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems

Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.

System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
− Open methodology and full confidentiality in order to maintain a trustful collaboration.

Since 2008, our partnership with YOLE Développement has allowed us to stay at the forefront of technologies and has added a market view to our reports.
