Power Electronics Firm Establishes U.S. Operation

Advanced Power Electronics has opened its first U.S. operation, located in San Jose, Calif. “Our US operation enables us to provide excellent service to local customers as well as better coordinating the needs of our multinational customers in the Americas and Europe,” stated Ralph Waggitt, Advanced Power Electronics’ U.S. president. “The decision to put this team in place reflects the company’s commitment to make the necessary investments to support local design and manufacturing needs.”

The company designs and manufactures its own power MOSFETs, IGBTs, and power management ICs. It is also a licensee of International Rectifier for planar MOSFET and IGBT technologies, as well as a series of analog ICs which IR discontinued in 2006.
