"GaN Transistors – Successes and Challenges Ahead"
Speaker: Alex Lidow PhD; CEO, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation
Location: Blacksburg, VA

It has been three years since the first gallium nitride transistors were delivered as power MOSFET replacements in a commercial DC-DC application. Since that time there has been major interest, and rapid progress in the development and commercialization of this new technology. In this talk we will give an update on GaN technology, the market successes, and the key technical and cost challenges ahead.
