GaN Systems Raises Series A Funding

GaN Systems, an Ottawa, Canada-based start-up that makes power conversion semiconductors for cleantech applications, has raised a Series A funding.

The round was led by Chrysalix Energy Venture Capital’s CELP III Fund, with participation from Rockport Capital.

Co-founded by CEO Girvan Patterson and CTO John Roberts, GaN Systems builds a product line of highly efficient, low-loss diodes, transistors, and integrated systems designed to enable switching efficiencies in excess of current silicon based solutions and offer benefits to switching power supply designs, inverters, hybrid and electric vehicles, battery management and power factor correction.
In addition to its own devices, the company partners with other semiconductor companies to develop and manufacture their own and complementary  products.
