Alex Lidow, scion of an engineering dynasty, thinks the essential material at the heart of the tech industry needs to change. Lidow, 60, is currently head of a company called Efficient Power Conversion, and is one of the tech world’s loudest advocates for making transistors and semiconductors from gallium nitride. Silicon is traditionally used for the transistors and semiconductors on which the technology industry relies. This is an amazingly lucrative business: according to the Semiconductor Industry Association, which represents U.S.-based firms, the worldwide semiconductor industry was ...
EPC’s DC-DC Conversion handbook is a guide showing how to achieve increased efficiency and power density in Datacom equipment and other power conversion applications using GaN power transistors.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – September 2015 – The demand for information is growing at unprecedented rates and society’s insatiable appetite for communication, computing and downloading, is driving this demand. With emerging technologies, such as, cloud computing and the internet of things, not to mention the 300 hours of video being loaded to YouTube every minute, this trend for ...
120 volt, 60 milliohm EPC2110 dual enhancement-mode gallium nitride power integrated circuit delivers ultra high frequency switching for exceptional performance in wireless power transfer Class-E amplifier applications.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – September 2015 – Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (www.epc-co.com) introduces the EPC2110 as the newest member of EPC’s family of enhancement-mode gallium nitride integrated circuits.
The company Alex founded in 2007, called Efficient Power Conversion, or EPC, is wholly dedicated to the task of putting GaN in the forefront for use in a variety of things. Wireless power transmission, Class D audio amplifiers, (using a small circuit board, this would produce less heat, and extend battery life on portable systems); and pulsed lasers, or LiDAR (Light Distancing and Ranging), designed to quickly create 3D images useful in mapping and meteorology.

The cost of electrical power is a key driver of socioeconomic vitality, as it enables us to improve our quality of life and advance new applications and industries. GaN (gallium nitride) has emerged as a displacement technology to the venerable, but aged, silicon solutions that will allow us to stay ahead of our demand for more and more efficient power.
