From EVs to solar to induction heating— every component of the electrification of everything works better, will be adopted faster and costs less with improved power conversion.

To improve power conversion efficiency, we need more efficient power semiconductors — and massively more of them — everywhere.

Our novel IGTO(t) is a direct drop-in upgrade for all IGBTs. 

Silicon Semiconductors

Pakal presents the IGTO(t), the first new high-voltage silicon power switch since the IGBT was brought to market 45 years ago.

Pakal’s IGTO(t) is:

Like the IGBT, the IGTO(t) has a “switching loss vs conduction loss” trade-off curve. Compared to the best IGBT, Pakal’s breakthrough patented physics shift the curve permanently down and to the left. 

Today, we already beat the efficiency of the best IGBTs. With equalized switching, we offer dramatically lower VCE(sat) (often>0.40 V lower) under real-world operating conditions compared to the best IGBTs. In addition, our IGTO(t) is a platform which over time will extend to all IGBT use cases, voltage and current ratings - and beyond.  We have an aggressive development and product release roadmap that will dramatically extend our silicon efficiency advantage for many years to come.

Cost-effective

Cost-effective

We believe price matters.  A solution that is 3x the cost of silicon cannot adequately ADDRESS the Electrification of Everything challenge. Given our production profile, we can offer the dramatic efficiency gains of the IGTO(t) at comparable prices to IGBTs.

Drop-in compatible

Drop-in compatible

The operational physics of the IGTO(t) core cell are novel and superior to the IGBT. However, our voltage gate driven switching mechanism is identical to that of the IGBT.  As a result, the IGTO(t) is a direct drop-in improvement for the IGBT.  We are compatible with industry standard drivers and controllers with standard 0 - +15 V, or -15 - +15 V drive switching.

Globally, rapidly scalable

The IGTO(t) is scalable and manufacturable globally on cost-effective (>130 nm) production equipment.  We have well-established production processes, with silicon yield, pricing and reliability.
