What GaN circuits can do for wireless charging

What GaN circuits can do for wireless charging

In this short video, EPC's Alex Lidow explains why GaN FETs may make it possible to wirelessly charge a variety of vehicles, including flying drones. Wireless charging circuits employing GaN FETs work at 13.56 MHz, a switching frequency difficult to reach with ordinary silicon FETs. The GaN transistors used are also five to ten times smaller than silicon devices able to handle the same power levels.

Why GaN circuits make better Lidar

Why GaN circuits make better Lidar

In this short video, EPC's Alex Lidow explains why GaN FETs can comprise circuits able to deliver Lidar resolutions down to a couple inches. Conventional silicon FETs performing the same tasks would be able to resolve images only down to a few feet. The secret is in the super-fast rise and fall times made possible by the GaN FETs.
