APEC 2018: GaN Revolution in the World of Power Electronics

APEC 2018: GaN Revolution in the World of Power Electronics

Feb 28, 2018

EPC Desktop Wireless Power CES 2018

Come see the world’s smallest, most efficient, and lowest cost DC-DC converters!  eGaN technology makes this, and much more possible and will be on full display at this year’s American Power Engineering Conference, APEC, where power engineers from around the world gather to see and learn about the latest innovations and products available in the world of power electronics.

EPC GaN experts will be presenting a half-day educational seminar on the state of GaN technology and its application to leading-edge power electronics. In addition, EPC will deliver six technical sessions, as well as demonstrate eGaN applications in our booth and customer suite.

Specifically, the technical presentations featuring eGaN FETs and Integrated Circuits by EPC Experts are

  • Education Seminar: Maximizing GaN FET and IC Performance, Not Just a Drop in Replacement of MOSFETs
  • Exhibitor Seminar: “GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion
  • Moving Up in Voltage with eGaN® FETs
  • Amplifier Design Challenges for Large Area Highly Resonant Wireless Power Systems
  • Evaluation of Measurement Techniques for High-Speed GaN Transistors
  • Design Considerations for GaN Transistor Based Synchronous Rectification
  • System Optimization of a High-Power Density Non-Isolated Intermediate Bus Converter for 48 V Server Applications

Within our booth, we will demonstrate our latest eGaN FETs and ICs in customers’ end products.  For example, we will be announcing products that deliver benchmark DC-DC efficiency, size, and cost for 48 V – 12 V, non-isolated, regulated power conversion used in advanced computing, AI, and gaming.

Two of our customers’ LiDAR systems will be on display, while our own LiDAR demo will show how eGaN FETs and ICs are speeding the deployment of autonomous vehicles by enabling faster images, higher resolution, and a longer viewing distance with ultra-narrow, and very high current laser pulses.

Also, in our booth will be a desk implementing a resonant wireless charging solution capable of generating 300 W to wirelessly power a wide range of devices including cell phones, notebook computers, monitors, wireless speakers, smart watches, and table lamps.

We will showcase two new eGaN IC products.  One of the products is an integrated gate driver plus 200 V FET in a 3.2 mm2 footprint.  The second new product, in the same tiny footprint, has dual 150 V FETs plus integrated gate drivers.  Both operate up to 7 MHz, driven from low power CMOS logic, making them ideal for applications such as wireless power, class d audio, and high frequency DC-DC conversion. Monolithic integration of multiple functions in GaN increases performance, lowers cost, and simplifies design.

Interested in finding out more about this higher performance, lower cost semiconductor technology?  Join us at APEC and discuss the GaN revolution in the world of power electronics.
