Gallium Nitride (GaN) ICs and Semiconductors – EPC

What is Gallium Nitride (GaN)What is GaN?

"The leading candidate for taking electronic performance to the next level and a reactivation of positive momentum of Moore’s Law is gallium nitride. GaN’s ability to conduct electrons more than 1000 times more efficiently than silicon, while being able to be manufactured at a lower cost than silicon has now been well established. Silicon is out of gas, and a new, higher performing semiconductor material is emerging – GaN is on the rise."

Move over, silicon. Gallium nitride chips are taking over | VentureBeat
