A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME) is collaborating with global power systems company Rolls-Royce for the research and development of advanced power electronics devices.

This research collaboration aims to use gallium nitrite (GaN) power devices for the development of high-power-density converters that can reliably measure various physical parameters at soaring temperatures of up to 300°C and at environmental pressure of up to 30kpsi.

This collaboration will be delivered through IME's Rugged Electronics programme. The focus of the Rugged Electronics programme is to develop a wide range of solutions from sensing, packaging, telemetry, non-volatile memory to integrated circuits

"We are excited to work with IME in the research and development of advanced power electronics systems and high temperature electronics. IME's expertise, flexibility and positive approach makes them an excellent research partner," said Kurichi Kumar, director, research and technology-Asia, Rolls-Royce Singapore.
