What do GaN FETS look like and how do they work?

eGaN transistors are very similar to lateral FETs (Field Effect Transistors) made in silicon. Please refer to the application note Fundamentals of Gallium Nitride Power Transistors for a general discussion of the devices and technology.

The following videos also cover the basics of GaN:
