VisIC Technologies raises over $11M to GaN commercialization

NES ZIONA, ISRAEL, January 11, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- VisIC Technologies, an innovator of efficient power electronics based on Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors, announced today that it has closed $11.6 million in a Series C financing lead by a new investor Birch Investment with participation of existing investors.
The revolutionary potential of GaN-based electronics for electrical power delivery systems, from consumer power supplies to solar inverters, UPS, power supplies for Cloud/Data Centers and electric motor drives, has been marketed and anticipated for years, especially for high voltage and high current switching applications. VisIC Technologies is the company that demonstrated in May (http://visic-tech.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/PR5-31.05.2016.pdf) performance of high current GaN switching device, following by breakthrough demonstration of 1200V GaN power switch, the only 1200V GaN device with outstanding dynamic performance known in industry (http://visic-tech.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/VisIC-1200V-release-18.09.16.pdf).
VisIC’s technology momentum and market drive, coupled with recent product validation by large players in the power electronics industry, lead to closing this successful investment round on favorable terms.
