Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) to Showcase Life-Changing Applications Using eGaN Technology at 2017 Applied Power Electronics and Exposition Conference (APEC)

EPC will exhibit more than 25 demonstrations showing how GaN technology’s superior performance is changing the way we live and company experts will deliver seven technical presentations on GaN FET and IC technology at APEC® 2017, the premier global event in applied power electronics.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — March 2017 — The EPC team will be delivering seven technical presentations on gallium nitride (GaN) technology and applications at APEC 2017 in Tampa, Florida from March 26th through the 30th. In addition, the company will feature its latest eGaN® FETs and ICs, as well as their customers’ end products that are enabled by eGaN technology.

In the company’s booth, #530, demonstrations will include a single tabletop implementing a high power resonant wireless charging solution capable of supporting a wide range of devices including cell phones, notebook computer, monitor, and table lamps. In addition, a brushless DC precision motor drive, a range of 3-D real-time LiDAR imaging sensors used in autonomous vehicles, a high intensity LED truck headlight, and a showdown between the best-in-class silicon MOSFETs and the latest high performance 100/200 V eGaN FETs will be demonstrated. These latest eGaN FETs cut the size of our devices in half while tripling performance.  This virtuous cycle of smaller size, lower costs and higher performance is expanding the gap in both performance and cost between eGaN FETs and ICs and the aging power MOSFET.

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.

About EPC

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, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
