Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) CEO to Author Gallium Nitride Technology Monthly Column on

Categories: Press Releases

Alex Lidow to author a monthly column in entitled “How to GaN,” addressing a range of technical issues related to gallium nitride (GaN) technology including its application in power conversion and management.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—June 2013— Efficient Power Conversion Corporation proudly announces that beginning in June, Alex Lidow, EPC co-founder and CEO, will author a monthly column on the online website, a leading website for electrical engineers.

The column, “How to GaN,” will begin with discussions on the basic principles of gallium technology and then move to focus on how to apply this high switching frequency technology in circuits for power converters, envelope tracking and wireless power transfer.

According to Cody Miller, co-founder and CEO, “We are privileged to have Dr. Lidow as our featured author on GaN technology. His more than 30 years’ experience in power electronics and demonstrated leadership in this new, rapidly emerging technology will give our readers insight into the benefits, challenges, and application of gallium nitride technology. Given the interactive nature of our website, we anticipate that his monthly column not only will provide insight into GaN but will spark thought-provoking interactive conversations on our website.”

Led by Dr. Lidow, EPC’s design and applications team are leading experts in GaN power transistor technology and applications. Since its founding in 2007, the EPC team has published over 50 articles, delivered more than 30 presentations, and published the only textbook available on the subject, “GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion.” The monthly column in is the latest example of EPC’s dedication to assisting the engineering community up the gallium nitride technology learning curve.

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 servers, wireless power transmission, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power-over-ethernet (PoE), solar micro inverters, energy efficient lighting, and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
