Navitas Semiconductor was formed in 2014 to enable a high-speed revolution in power electronics. Power systems can achieve a dramatic improvement in charging speed, power densities and cost reduction if high switching frequencies can be combined with high energy efficiencies.
Navitas makes this revolution possible with the invention of the industry’s first GaN power ICs which enable up to a 100x increase in switching speeds while increasing energy savings by 40% or more.
The origin of the company’s name, Navitas, is Latin for ”energy” which fits our focus on energy savings as well as the energy we are bringing to accelerate the market and lead a high speed revolution in power electronics.
Navitas was founded by a management team with an extraordinary track record of innovation and business creation in power electronics.
In aggregate, the team is credited with industry achievements and successes that include over 200 issued patents, 200 industry papers & presentations and the development of over 100 industry-leading power semiconductor technologies.
These technologies include the industry’s first commercial planar power MOSFETs, first high-voltage power ICs, first driver + MOSFET integration, first application-specific power MOS chip-sets, first cascode GaN power FETs and many others across all major power electronics markets.
