Within the EPC hospitality suite, wirelessly powered systems for the home and GaN based, industry-leading LiDAR systems used in autonomous vehicles will be on display.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — December 2018 — Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) will be demonstrating the power of eGaN® technology to enhance two game-changing consumer applications – wireless power and LiDAR for self-driving cars – at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 8th through the 11th.
In the EPC Palazzo hospitality suite at The Venetian hotel, visitors will enter a wireless world. EPC will have multiple wirelessly powered surfaces on display to demonstrate the myriad of consumer uses in the home for systems with enough power to simultaneously power a computer, power a lamp, power an alarm clock, communicate via a digital assistant, charge a cell phone and charge a wearable – all without running a single power cord to any of the devices. A wirelessly powered robotic digital assistant will also be on display. EPC experts will be available within the suite to discuss where wireless power is going and how this technology can transform our lives.
Also shown in the suite will be multiple eGaN FET-based LiDAR systems. LiDAR technology is emerging as the leading technology to act as the “eyes” for self-driving cars, and increasingly finding new applications in warehouse automation, augmented reality, and drones. Visit the EPC suite to see the demonstrations and learn how GaN technology is enabling the future of low cost sensors.
Attendees to CES interested in meeting with EPC applications experts during the event can attend specially scheduled sessions within the EPC customer suite by sending a request to /epc/Contact/RequestMeeting.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 and integrated circuits as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote imaging and sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs. EPC also has a growing portfolio of eGaN-based integrated circuits that provide even greater space, energy, and cost efficiency.
