Join Digi-Key Electronics Senior Applications Engineer, David Lunsetter, and EPC CEO and Co-Founder Alex Lidow on October 28th, 2020 at 8:00 AM PDT to discover how to harness the power of enhancement-mode gallium nitride (eGaN®) FETs and ICs for motor drives.

David Lunsetter, a Senior Applications Engineer at Digi-Key Electronics, has been helping Digi-Key customers for over 24 years. His speciality is knowing a bit about most products Digi-Key Electronics sells and keeping the memory of such items as bucket-brigades and WOMs alive. David holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from North Dakota State University. When not working, he enjoys paddling and wetting a line now and then; that is, when he can get away from chauffeuring children, battling foxes, or mending fences.

In this webinar, Digi-Key Electronics and EPC CEO, Alex Lidow will discuss:

Why GaN for 48 V Motor Drives?

  • Improve precision
  • Smaller and lighter
  • Lower EMI
  • Faster response

Key Applications:

  • High-end eBike and eScooters
  • Cobots & Robots
  • Medical robotics
  • Drones

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