Join EPC and DigiKey on this the webinar to discover the basic techniques for using GaN transistors in high-performance power conversion circuits to achieve maximum performance.

Host: David Lunsetter, a Senior Applications Engineer at DigiKey, has been helping DigiKey customers for over 24 years. His speciality is knowing a bit about most products DigiKey sells and keeping the memory of such items as bucket-brigades and WOMs alive. David holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from North Dakota State University. When not working, he enjoys paddling and wetting a line now and then; that is, when he can get away from chauffeuring children, battling foxes, or mending fences.

In this webinar, DigiKey and EPC CEO, Alex Lidow will discuss some of the primary design issues we see in the field with designers using GaN for the first time. These include:

  • Gate drive techniques and available solutions for fast-switching GaN devices
  • Optimal layout techniques to take full advantage of the speed of GaN
  • PCB design and how to ensure reliable, high-yielding results
  • Simple, inexpensive heat-sinking techniques to extract even more power out of GaN designs
  • What about EMI?
  • How reliable are eGaN FETs and ICs?

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about accessing the recorded webinar.
