Designers Face Off With GaN Power Transistors

To inspire power design engineers at Chinese universities to advance electronic power technology, GaN Systems is again sponsoring the annual CPSS design competition. The China Power Supply Society (CPSS), the China Power Society Science Popularization Committee, and the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics are conducting a competition to design high efficiency, high power density, GaN-based inverters. 

The theme of the third annual competition is the application of power electronics technology for innovation, energy saving and new energy use. Inverter design entries will be evaluated based on performance criteria, including inverter efficiency, power density, and output stability across various load conditions. The CPSS will announce the finalist teams on September 15, and the competition winners will be announced and presented their awards at the November 22 annual meeting. For more details, visit
