Exagan was founded by Frédéric Dupont and Fabrice Letertre, who together accrued more than 30 years of semiconductor industry experience at Soitec, a global leader in advanced materials. After many years of conducting R&D in gallium nitride (GaN) and convinced that GaN will be a key driver for device performance, they committed to draw upon an existing GaN material technology to develop the ultimate GaN power-device solution, with the goal of accelerating large-scale adoption of this “electrical converter booster” technology in 200-mm semiconductor manufacturing.
Backed by Soitec and CEA-Leti, a leading European research center focused on micro- and nanotechnologies, the founders launched Exagan as a spin-off company in April 2014.
As opposed to an integrated circuit, discrete semiconductors perform a single electronic function. Discretes are categorized into diodes, transistors and several other types, and are used in a variety of applications such as voltage regulation, surge protection, switching, power conversion and more. We offer a full line of discrete semiconductors from distinguished brands. Use our parametric search filters that allow for quick and precise product searches.
