Cambridge GaN Devices (CGD) is a 2016 spin out from the High Voltage Microelectronics and Sensors lab at the University of Cambridge Engineering Department. The two founders Florin Udrea and Giorgia Longobardi have been working on efficient power electronics based on GaN for more than 10 years. The lab has a successful track record of commercialising innovation and Florin Udrea has a long and pioneering career in power electronics design and successful commercialisation of his research. He was behind the success of Cambridge CMOS Sensors; a Cambridge spin out in an adjacent technology that was backed by Parkwalk and Cambridge Enterprise to a successful trade sale exit in 2016.
