GaN devices take power-switching into performance regions beyond what existing and even foreseeable MOSFET-based designs are able to offer. However, the speed and capabilities of these GaN devices means that even more attention and sophistication is needed to properly manage their turn-on/off characteristics with respect to gate drive, voltage and current slew rate, current levels, noise sources and coupling, layout considerations and many other factors.
