EPC and ASD Form Value-added Partnership Dedicated to Reducing Time to Market for GaN-based Wireless Power Solutions

EPC’s new value-added partnership with ASD aims to support customer designs from conception to manufacturing of eGaN® technology-based wireless power charging and other emerging applications.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.— July 2016 — Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), Los Angeles-based innovator in gallium nitride (eGaN) technology for replacing MOSFET technology, has joined forces with ASD Technology Limited (ASD), a Hong-Kong-based company delivering best-in-class customer solutions for applications using the latest eGaN technology.

EPC is the leader in the development of gallium nitride technology in displacing ageing MOSFET technology with eGaN FET and IC’s significant advantages in end applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology and Class-D audio amplifiers.

Hong Kong-based ASD is an innovator on imaging electronic components with over 14 years of experience in providing innovative and comprehensive customer solutions, from concept development to product manufacturing. ASD offers design and manufacturing services to customers looking for effective solutions and products for shipments worldwide to their customers in global markets including U.S., European and Greater China markets, 

“Delivering innovative solutions while reducing time to market has been a challenge for many customers, especially when new technologies are involved. We strongly believe that the potential of the gallium nitride technology will lead the next uptake of the semiconductor industry, while customers also look for effective solutions from product conception to development and to manufacturing. We are very excited to be able to partner with EPC by integrating its state-of-the-art eGaN technology with sophisticated designs for our customers who engage us to innovate hand-in-hand from conception to implementation,” said Patrick Lee, Chief Executive Officer of ASD.

“We have been looking for business partners who have extensive, proven system design experience from conception to implementation by supporting the ever-growing market demand for eGaN technology. ASD is our partner of choice. In quarters ahead, we look forward to EPC and ASD’s value-added partnership, which can support customers in their eGaN-based wireless charging designs and other applications while expanding our joint GaN business development worldwide. We can see the markets for GaN-based products have been growing fast, and GaN-based applications are expected to displace MOSFET-based applications going forward,” said Alex Lidow, Chief Executive Office and Co-founder of EPC.
