Frequent 12 | February_2020 - Research news from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut


Topic: Wide bandgap devices & modules for efficient power electronics

  • coping with the demands of energy-hungry societies
  • integration concepts for efficient GaN converters
  • novel materials & device concepts


The responsible use of resources is one of today`s key challenges, especially since energy consumption will continue to rise with the demands.

Thus, we are all called upon to make our commitment – from consumers to reduce their energy consumption to technical solutions that consume less energy. The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut contributes with its developments targeting energy-efficient conversion of electrical energy. We have compiled an overview of different FBH approaches involving novel high-performance materials as well as efficient semiconductor power switches used in power-electronic converters. In addition, our short news keep you posted on further developments.

I wish you an inspiring reading, Günther Tränkle
