Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) to Showcase Industry-Leading Performance in High Power Density DC-DC Conversion and Multiple High-Frequency Applications Using eGaN Technology at APEC 2019

EPC will exhibit live demonstrations showing how GaN technology’s superior performance is transforming power delivery for entire industries including computing, communications, and automotive.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — March 2019 — The EPC team will be delivering eleven technical presentations on gallium nitride (GaN) technology and applications at APEC 2019 in Anaheim, California from March 17th through the 21st. In addition, the company will demonstrate its latest eGaN FETs and ICs in customers’ end products that are enabled by eGaN technology.

In the company’s booth, #953, demonstrations addressing DC-DC power levels starting at 120 W to 3 kW will be on display. Demonstrations include a high-power density 48 V – 12 V non-isolated, bidirectional converter capable of delivering 3 kW. In addition, a range of 3-D real-time Lidar imaging sensors used in autonomous vehicles will be displayed. Also on display will be high power resonant wireless charging solution capable of wirelessly powering a wide range of devices including cell phones, notebook computers, monitors, wireless speakers, smartwatches, and table lamps. Redefining the power conversion component, a new GaN IC will be shown.

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 and integrated circuits as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, automotive, 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.

eGaN is a registered trademark of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, Inc.
