The fact that GaN is a suitable candidate to replace silicon in many power systems is not a question anymore. As reported in “Power GaN 2018: Epitaxy, Devices, Applications and Technology Trends” from Yole Développement (Yole), even if GaN currently still holds only a small share of the market it has a good outlook for the coming years.
