Dieter is a senior management leader in the semiconductor industry with over 30 years of experience in Sales, Marketing, Business Development, new technology introduction and new product definition.
Prior to joining VisIC Technologies he served for ten years at Wolfspeed GmbH as a Senior Sales & Marketing Director and built first the industrial and later the automotive department with an automotive application center.
Dieter drove the industry’s conversion from Silicon to Wide Band Gap (SiC), by building an eco-system to support the fast-switching Wide Band Gap devices and partnering with industry leaders for creating a multi-billion USD business.
Dieter holds an engineering degree Dipl.-Ing. (TH) from the University of RWTH Aachen, Germany.
VisIC Technologies has a decade of experience in creating, developing, and advancing concepts based on cutting-edge Gallium Nitride-on-silicon technology. We develop solutions that help reduce energy waste in power conversion systems, with a focus on battery electric vehicles (BEV). Our patented D3GaN technology – Direct Drive D-mode GaN – addresses the automotive industry’s cost, supply, sustainability, reliability, quality, and performance needs.
With our D3GaN technology, BEV can save up to 50% on power losses over the driving cycle of the electric car, thus reducing battery cost and increasing driving range and performance. This solution also reduces the cooling system requirements and the size of the BEV inverter.
VisIC Technologies has produced the first GaN-based transistors used in automotive inverters. By utilizing the GaN on Silicon technology, we address the supply chain concern as we are using existing semiconductor high-volume production lines.
