Gallium Nitride power devices are poised to replace silicon-based MOSFETs and IGBTs in automotive power switching applications. With its projected 100x performance advantage over silicon, GaN is a game changing technology for power electronics. This paper reviews the advantages of GaN material and devices, the performance of these devices in power circuits, and the remaining challenges facing the technology.
