EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – April, 2012 - Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, (www.epc-co.com) the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride FET technology, announces today that it has been recognized with inclusion in the EE Times Silicon 60 list of 60 Emerging Startups. Companies are selected by the editorial team at EE Times based on a mix of criteria including: technology, intended market, maturity, financial position, investment profile, and executive leadership.
"It is an honor to receive this recognition from EE Times as one of the hottest emerging electronics companies and as EE Times has noted, 'an emerging company worthy of tracking,'" commented Alex Lidow, CEO, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation.
Compared to state-of-the-art silicon power MOSFETs with similar on-resistance, EPC's eGaN® FETs are smaller and have many times superior switching performance. Applications that benefit from eGaN FETs' enhanced performance include RF envelope tracking, wireless power transmission, high-speed DC-DC power supplies, point-of-load converters, class D audio amplifiers, hard-switched and high frequency circuits.
Additional information on EPC's family of eGaN FETs can be found at http://epc-co.com/epc/Products/eGaNFETs.aspx.
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 as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as servers, netbooks, notebooks, LED lighting, cell phones, base stations, flat-panel displays, and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
