Produced by industry experts, EPC has posted a nine-part educational video series on design basics, DC-DC conversion, wireless charging, reliability, and other applications for gallium nitride FETs and integrated circuits.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – January 2016 – Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (www.epc-co.com) has expanded its video library on GaN technology with the addition of a nine-part educational video series designed to provide power system design engineers advanced technical information and application examples on how to design more efficient power conversion systems using gallium nitride-based transistors and integrated circuits.
Beyond giving the design basics for using GaN transistors and reliability information, this video series provides direction on converting development boards into working prototypes. Further, the series offers practical examples on the use of GaN transistors in widely used power electronics applications such as DC-DC conversion for telecom and datacom systems, as well as two videos on the use of GaN devices in wireless charging systems.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) Advanced Learning Video Series:
GAL01: What is GaN?
GaN has emerged as a displacement technology to silicon solutions. GaN’s superior performance can be implemented at the price of silicon, which makes it ideal for power conversion system.
GAL02: Design Basics
Gate drive requirements for use with eGaN® FET and current power conversion circuit designs.
GAL03: GaN is Reliable
EPC reliability testing has demonstrated that GaN technology is ready for commercial use and this video describes the reliability tests and the results achieved.
GAL04: 500 W Isolated DC-DC Converter with GaN – The Power of a Quarter Brick in the Size of an Eight Brick
Presentation of a fully regulated, fully isolated 500 W 1/8th brick using eGaN transistors enabling a 60% increase in power in the industry standard DOSA footprint.
GAL05: Cut the Cord! Wireless Power with GaN
Demonstrations of the benefits of GaN technology in resonant wireless power transfer systems. Both AirFuel™ Alliance’s class 2 and class 3 system designs are showcased as examples.
