At the IEEE APEC 2014 power electronics industry conference, EPC applications experts will make technical presentations on GaN FET technology and applications showing the superiority of GaN transistors compared to silicon power MOSFETs.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — February, 2014 — Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, the world’s leader in enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN®) power FETs will be presenting three application-focused technical presentations at APEC 2014. Participants will learn about high frequency resonant converter, and high-frequency, hard-switched power converter design. The conference will be held in Fort Worth, Texas from March 16th through the 20th.
The Premier Event in Applied Power Electronics™, APEC, focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. It is the leading conference for practicing power electronics professionals addressing a broad range of topics in the use, design, manufacture and marketing of all kinds of power electronics components and equipment.

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 DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, solar micro inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
