Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) Widens the Performance Gap with the Aging Power MOSFET with “Off-the-Shelf” High Performance Gallium Nitride Power Transistors

eGaN® power transistors continue to raise the bar for power conversion performance. Lower on-resistance, lower capacitance, higher current, and superior thermal performance enable power converters with greater than 98% efficiency.

Device Models for Enhancement Mode GaN Transistors from Efficient Power Conversion Corporation

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)—Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) today announced that the company has made available updated device models for all of its enhancement mode gallium nitride (eGaN™) transistors on its web site.

These updates improve the robustness of the models without changing the core equations. Performance predictions with the new models will be consistent with previous versions of EPC SPICE models.

TSPICE, PSPICE, LTSPICE, and Spectre device models are provided to help designers of advanced eGaN-based power conversion circuits and systems understand the value of the EPC eGaN power transistor family and reduce their time-to-market with benchmark products.

These free downloads are available at:
