EPC to Show Life-changing Applications Using eGaN Technology at 2016 Applied Power Electronics and Exposition Conference (APEC)

EPC will exhibit more than 20 demonstrations showing how GaN technology’s superior performance is changing the way we live and company experts will deliver six technical presentations on GaN FET technology at APEC® 2016, the premier global event in applied power electronics

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — March, 2016 — The EPC team will be presenting six technical presentations on gallium nitride (GaN) technology and applications at APEC 2016 in Long Beach, California from March 20th through the 24th. In addition, the company will feature its latest eGaN® FETs and IC’s as well as their customers’ end products that are enabled by eGaN technology. Demonstrations will include wireless power systems that span the full power range of Qi and AirFuel standards and a multi-mode solution, a single stage 48 V – 1 V DC-DC converter, 3-D real-time LiDAR imaging camera, and an LTE compatible envelope tracking supply in booth #2244.

The Premier Event in Applied Power Electronics™, APEC, focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. It is the leading conference for practicing power electronics professionals addressing a broad range of topics in the use, design, manufacture and marketing of all kinds of power electronics components and equipment.

About EPC

EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
