GaN community grows: ex-IR CEO launches GaN-based power transistors

The enhancement mode -normally OFF- GaN technology was explicitly developed to replace power MOSFETs. Says Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO, enhancement mode - rather than depletion mode - is essential for GaN to become a broad-scale silicon power MOSFET replacement.
