EPC continues its 2018 GaN China Roadshow with participation in the upcoming WiPDA 2018 conference in Xian May 17th through 18th
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.— May 2018 — Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) started a GaN China Roadshow 2018 beginning in Shenzhen in March with technical presentations at the AirFuel Developers Forum. The second event in the roadshow was participation in SEMI China’s Power and Compound Semiconductor International Forum held in Shanghai, where Alex Lidow, CEO gave a keynote speech. Soon, from May 17 to 19, EPC will be meeting with engineers to share knowledge and demonstrations of eGaN® devices, at WiPDA Asia IEEE workshop to be held at the Cullinan Huicheng Hotel in Xi’an. Beyond WiPDA, the next stop for the EPC roadshow will be PCIM Asia, to be held in Shanghai, June 26th through 28th. At this conference, EPC experts will be giving technical presentations on the use of GaN devices in wireless power transfer and LiDAR for autonomous cars.
At WiPDA, EPC will be exhibiting (booth no. 17) a number of eGaN® FETs and ICs used in a range of end-use applications such as wireless power transfer, 48 V- 12 V DC-DC power conversion, and LiDAR for autonomous cars. This forum will be held for the first time in Asia for device scientists, circuit designers, and application engineers to share the latest wide bandgap technology updates, research findings, development experience and application knowledge.
Professor Laili Wang, of Xi’an Jiaotong University said, “EPC has been the leader in gallium nitride technology development and commercialization since 2009, with its contributions to the development of wide bandgap power devices and applications. There are many existing and emerging applications which have adopted GaN devices like LiDAR, wireless power and DC/DC applications that are not possible 5 years ago. These GaN-enabled applications run more efficiently, faster and better.”
Alex Lidow, CEO and co-founder of EPC said, “WiPDA is an important knowledge-exchange platform worldwide and we are glad to participate at its first Asian stop in Xi’an, China. Our aim is to continue supporting GaN communities to accelerate the learning curve for GaN technology.”
The WiPDA Asia 2018 forum is organized by Xi’an Jiaotong University and Xidian University, sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Power Electronics Society and CPSS. The forum will cover tutorials and keynote sessions delivered by leading experts from academia, industry and research institutes who will share insights on technology development and future trends. There will also be a panel session with experts from the government, industry and academia (www.wipda-asia.org).
EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs and integrated circuits as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters,
