Duration: 1 hour

Join the webinar to learn:

  • Two approaches to 3D imaging: direct time-of-flight (DToF) and indirect time-of-flight (IToF)
  • Where each of these approaches will find its position in the autonomous applications emerging now; robotics, drones, 3D sensing, autonomous cars, and more...
  • How integrating an eGaN FET plus driver on one chip generates an extremely powerful, blazing-fast IC and reduces size and cost for safer autonomy.
  • The results of GaN lidar-specific reliability testing showing no new failure mechanisms introduced by the new and extreme operating conditions of lidar transmitters.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

All registrants will be entered for a chance to win a copy of GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, Third Edition. One book will be given away per webinar, please read Giveaway Rules.

Alex Lidow

Speaker: Alex Lidow is CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects, including co-authoring the first textbook on GaN transistors, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, now in its third edition published by John Wiley and Sons. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech and his Ph.D. from Stanford.

Henry Qiu

Speaker: Henry Qiu is the Senior FAE Manager at EPC providing technical support to customers and working with design engineers to develop applications using eGaN technology.

Henry has assisted customers to realize their product design pipelines implementing eGaN devices which optimized the circuit performance well beyond silicon FET-based solutions. Prior to joining EPC, Henry had over 6 years of experience in DC-DC power supply design. During his 3 years working for Huawei Technologies Co. Limited in Shenzhen, China, he managed power module projects, adopted GaN FETs in power supply applications, and had practical experiences incorporating the benefits of eGaN technology benefits into DC-DC, wireless power and lidar designs.

Henry earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Automation in 2011 and Master of Science degree in Control Theory and Control Engineering in 2014 from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China.

Shoichi Yasuda

Speaker: Shoichi Yasuda joined EPC as the Vice President of Sales for Japan and Korea in October 2018 with over 20 years of work experience. His primary responsibilities at EPC are creating and implementing strategies to achieve the company’s sales objectives in Japan and Korea. Yasuda worked for a wide range of semiconductor companies holding positions as FAE, as well as Sales/Marketing management. Before joining EPC, he worked for a large stocking representative in Japan, where he acquired in-depth knowledge of EPC’s eGaN products and advantages. In representing EPC, Yasuda captured opportunities to demonstrate EPC’s solutions at various customers all over Japan, sharing with design engineers the latest technological development of gallium nitride devices and applications.
