Ottawa, Ontario – GaN Systems, the leading developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, has appointed Kruvand Associates as its representative in the US states of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Specialist sales engineering and marketing company Kruvand has expertise in power, interconnect, thermal, electromechanical, RF & wireless active and passive components. As sales of GaN power transistors ramp up and replace silicon semiconductors in power applications, Kruvand’s Inside Sales and Customer Team will provide pre-sales and design services to GaN Systems’ customers and distributor partners in these important geographical areas.
Julian Styles, Director Sales and Marketing, Americas at GaN Systems comments: “As worldwide demand grows for our industry-leading gallium nitride power devices, we are building a network of the very best distributors and representatives.

Robert Logan, President and CEO, Kruvand Associates adds: “GaN Systems’ power switching transistors truly have the “wow factor”, being the broadest range available, including the world’s highest current device and the world’s smallest packaged GaN transistor. Our customers recognize immediately that this amount of power out of a tiny package, one quarter the size and one quarter the weight per Watt compared to silicon devices is definitely a key differentiator. We have customers in multiple markets, including power, telecommunications, medical, computing/datacomms/IT, oil and gas, energy, industrial, consumer and transportation, who are either designing in GaN right now, or looking to get on board with GaN in the very near future. Without it, they realize they may get left behind.”
