PowerSphyr and GaN Systems sign strategic agreement

PowerSphyr, a specialist in wireless charging, and GaN Systems, a developer of GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, have announced a strategic agreement to bring state-of-the-art GaN-based wireless power systems to market for high powered applications across consumer, industrial, and automotive sectors worldwide.

The collaboration looks to leverage PowerSphyr’s many years of wireless power technology expertise and GaN Systems’ industry-leading GaN semiconductors, to deliver easy-to-use, high performance, and complete wireless charging solutions.

Working together to develop hardware and firmware solutions, PowerSphyr and GaN Systems are committed to delivering solutions that adhere to wireless charging standards, while developing next generation power and functional capabilities that exceed anything offered in the market today.

GaN transistors are seen, by many, as the best means for higher power level applications from 30W up to several kilowatts – much greater than achieved with traditional silicon solutions and provide the building block to achieve higher power, higher efficiency, and lower cost in wireless power transmitters. GaN-based wireless power solutions have enabled faster charging, higher power transfer, and new system designs that are removing the limitations of distance and power and moving charging beyond phones into anything imaginable including power tools, robots, drones, and ebikes.

“GaN Systems was a clear choice as a strategic partner,” said Neil Ganz, CEO and Chairman of PowerSphyr. “We selected GaN Systems on the basis of our strategic vision for delivering fast, flexible, and complete wireless charging solutions, and their ability to rapidly deliver a complete family of robust, reliable, best-in-class semiconductors.”

“Cutting the cord began with the telephone then ethernet LAN and now the power cord,” said Jim Witham, GaN Systems CEO. “A world without cords is becoming a realisation because of collaboration with companies like PowerSphyr, whose technology, approach, and expertise is uniquely positioned to accelerate the wireless power transfer and charging marketplace.”
