GaN Success or Advantages

It takes a suitably matched and configured driver to make sure that the switching device — GaN operates to its full qualifications and does not have unplanned issues. More commonly, the role of this driver in the device is to be the electrical line among the lower-voltage digital output of the microprocessor-based controller or the same circuitry and the higher-voltage with high current, slew-rate demands of the power-switching device.

With this, there is much more to the role of RF GaN device than this. The need for the current high enough rate to swiftly charge the input capacitance of the device and to turn it on, yet it must quickly and crisply pull that charge from the gate input without ringing or overshoot.

At most, the factors define the top-tier concerns of GaN devices and its advantages —

The maximum gate voltage allowable is the gate threshold voltage and the body diode voltage drop. The gate-source voltage for an improved GaN device is 6V, and this simplifies the challenge of generating the needed turn-on and turn-off voltages and electric. The gate voltage is also lower than it is for most power MOSFETs and has a lower negative temperature coefficient, which also simplifies driver-compensation issues.
