European distributor will now offer Transphorm 600 Volt GaN HEMT devices

GOLETA, Calif., – Transphorm Inc. today announced that it has completed a distribution agreement with HY-LINE Power Components GmbH to stock and distribute its family of 600 Volt GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) in Central Europe. HY-Line's technical expertise will support the growing demand for JEDEC-qualified 600 Volt GaN products that have now grown to the level requiring an expanding sales channel to respond to opportunities, specifically in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Transphorm has established worldwide leadership in providing GaN-based power conversion solutions for power supplies and adapters, motor drives, solar inverters and electric vehicles.

"HY-LINE is specialized in offering cutting-edge, energy-saving technology. Transphorm's technical leadership in the emerging GaN technology, including, to-date, being able to offer production volume of 600 Volt GaN-on-Silicon HEMTs, has moved GaN from potential to practical use in high-efficiency power conversion systems," said Jochen Krause, HY-Lines' CEO. "We're pleased that this distribution agreement with Transphorm will allow us to offer these unique products to customers in Central Europe who require the power savings that only GaN can achieve."

"We selected HY-LINE Power Components based upon their technical expertise and ability to both create and support demand in the rapidly growing segment of the power conversion market," said Transphorm's VP of Sales, Bret Daniels. "With the completion of qualification last year, Transphorm's GaN devices have moved from advanced engineering research into product design and production, which makes this the right time to expand into distribution.  We look forward to working with HY-LINE to service our growing sales demand."
