In August 2009, Tamara completed Phase I of a multi-million USD, multi-year GaN program, one year ahead of the initial schedule. In 2010 she founded VisIC Technologies to make it a technology licensor and a provider of high-voltage (650V and above), high-volume GaN devices to the rapidly growing power conversion market. Nowadays they offer a wide range of inverters and on-board chargers. Automotive business is the most obvious area of application for their products.
