The pace of digitalization is speeding up, not only because of the recent push to online collaboration due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, powerful and sufficient state-of-the-art telecom infrastructure is crucial. To meet the requirements associated with this, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) has provided CoolGaN™ to deliver ultimate efficiency and reliability to telecom power supply systems.

Infineon’s GaN devices are qualified according to JEDEC standards, offering lifetimes beyond 15 years, and are a perfect fit for industrial telecom and server SMPS. The CoolGaN 600 V e-mode HEMT in the DFN8x8 package is a key component in Delta’s DPR 3000E EnergE rectifiers enabling an industry-leading energy efficiency of 98 percent. With that, Delta’s rectifiers can heavily support the nascent 5G telecom networks of the world’s leading telecom carriers across the globe.

“Delta’s Telecom Power Solutions have built an unparalleled track record in the global market, especially by enabling lower energy consumption and CO 2 emissions in 4G and the next-generation 5G telecommunications,” said Eton Lee, General Manager of Delta’s Communication & Information Solutions Business Unit. “We have achieved that success by collaborating with tier-one brands to develop our solutions. Moreover, Infineon’s CoolGaN chips deliver excellent performance to Delta’s 3000E rectifiers, which boast industry-leading efficiency up to 98 percent and an outstanding power density of 56.8 W/in³. It provides high performance while consuming little energy.”

“At Infineon, we work closely with our customers to help them achieve ever-growing requirements towards energy efficiency and also power density,” said Stefan Obersriebnig, Product Line Head High Voltage Conversion of Infineon’s Power & Sensor System Division. “With our complete portfolio of wide bandgap solutions, i.e. CoolGaN™ and CoolSiC™, we are paving the way towards a new era in the power industry.”

Besides being suitable for industrial applications, Infineon’s CoolGaN family is also a perfect match for consumer applications such as adapters, chargers, wireless charging, and class-D audio amplifiers. More information about the CoolGaN is available at
