EPC’s latest family of eGaN® transistors and ICs takes a quantum leap in increasing Performance while reducing costs for new and existing applications currently served by MOSFETs
EL SEGUNDO, Calif — September 2017 Efficient Power Conversion Corporation’s Gen 5 eGaN® transistor and IC family has been honored with an Electronic Products China / 21iC Media’s “Top 10 Power Products – Best Application Award.” The award presentation was announced on September 15th, 2017 in Beijing, China during 21iC Power Conference 2017.
Electronic Products China/ 21iC Media — a leading trade publication for electronic design engineers — evaluated a significant number of products launched from August 1, 2016 to July 1, 2017. The winning products were selected on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology or application, and substantial achievement in the products’ price and performance.
The Gen 5 eGaN® transistor and IC family, with the introduction of the EPC2045, EPC2046 and EPC2047, cuts the size of our devices in half while tripling their performance. This reduction in cost and improvement expands the gap in both performance and cost between eGaN FETs and ICs and the aging silicon power MOSFET.
Applications benefiting from this technology advancement for the 100 V, EPC2045, include single stage 48 V to load Open Rack server architectures, point-of-load converters, LiDAR, low inductance motor drives, and USB-C. Additionally, wireless power, multi-level AC-DC power supplies, Class-D audio amplifiers, robotics, and solar micro inverters are ideal applications for the latest 200 V eGaN FETs; the EPC2046 and EPC2047.
“We are very proud that the panel of judges of Electronic Products China/21iC Media has recognized our latest Gen 5 eGaN FETs and ICs products for their best, real life applications. With proven applications in wireless charging, LiDAR and DC-DC power conversion, to name a few, this Best Application Award substantiates that eGaN technology is the performance leader in power conversion,” said Alex Lidow, CEO and Co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation.
2017 marks the 15th annual Electronic Products China’s “Top 10 Power Product Awards,” which recognizes the best products in the semiconductor industry (http://www.21ic.com/wz/CRXDQWHFA/20170801/20170801.htm).
