Integrated GaN Power Stage for eMobility

Integrated GaN Power Stage for eMobility

Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are a popular choice and are finding increasing application in robotics, drones, electric bicycles, and electric scooters. All these applications are particularly sensitive to size, weight, cost, and efficiency. A monolithically integrated GaN power stage is demonstrated powering a 400 W capable BLDC motor with low switching losses and significant savings in size and weight.

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.

APEC 2016: An Engineer's Perspective on a Power Conference

APEC 2016: An Engineer's Perspective on a Power Conference

You might have seen some behind-the-scenes tweets from the life of the ECN editor (and News Director) and while a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes an engineer's perspective on a conference is worth a little more.

With that in mind, I reached out to some APEC engineers and attendees to get the lowdown on this year's Applied Power Electronics Conference in Long Beach, CA. We talked about how the show compared to last year, the biggest trends, and how APEC went for their companies.
