Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) to Sponsor Inaugural ‘GaN Con’ with Yole Développement (Yole) and SEMI Covering the Entire Power GaN Industry from Manufacturers to End Users

In this conference GaN market and technology status will be addressed and its future evolution will be debated by mixing visions from designers, manufacturers, and end users.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — January 2019 — Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) is joining forces with Yole Développement (Yole) and SEMI to sponsor the first ever ‘GaN Con,’ an industry networking event covering the entire power GaN industry from manufacturers to end users. The theme of GaN Con is “Power GaN: From promises to possible market explosion” and is focused on the emerging GaN market and the state-of-the-art for its underlying technology.

Under Yole’s base case scenario, GaN market is expected to grow steadily with a 55% CAGR between 2017 and 2023 (1). GaN has been a promising technology for a while. Several R&D institutes and industrial companies dedicated important investments to explore and evaluate this technology and make the links with market demands. Yole’s analysts identified multiple power electronics & compound semiconductor companies, including leading silicon suppliers, strongly engaged in significant projects of development. GaN Con will offer an opportunity to further explore the status of GaN technology and its adoption.

“GaN Con is a great opportunity for companies to get an up-to-date overview of GaN technologies and power electronics applications, understand the technical challenges and debate with industrial experts,” asserts Ana Villamor, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst at Yole.

GaN Con will take place in the SEMI Office, Milpitas (USA) on February 21 (morning). This half-day event will be an unparalleled gathering of leading companies from component manufacturers to end users, who will discuss and debate on GaN market and its future evolution by mixing visions at an executive level. Key speakers include Yole, EPC, GaN Systems, Navitas, Texas Instruments, and more.

Attendees to GaN Con will get valuable insights into the status and future of the GaN industry as well as be provided with unprecedented opportunities for networking and meeting with key players and a round table to end the discussions. Ticket fees for the event are USD 120, including sessions and coffee break. Registration is open now.

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 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.
