EPC has posted additional modules to the educational video podcast series focusing on reliability and leading-edge applications including high-density computing for Artificial Intelligence (AI), lidar for robots, drones, and cars, and Class-D audio using gallium nitride FETs and ICs.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – April 2020 – Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) Corporation has posted an update to its popular “How to GaN” video podcast series. The six videos included in the current release of the series provide practical examples to help designers employ GaN technology to create state-of-the-art DC-DC converters for AI servers and ultra-thin laptops, lidar for robots, drones, and autonomous cars, and audio systems with the highest quality acoustics possible.
Within the EPC hospitality suite at the Venetian hotel, world-changing innovations and gallium nitride (GaN) will go hand in hand. A variety of demonstrations will showcase GaN’s higher efficiency, smaller size, and lower cost solutions.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — December 2019 — Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) announced that it will be demonstrating the power of eGaN® technology to enhance game-changing consumer applications including self-driving cars, robots, drones, wireless power, world-class audio and cutting-edge automotive solutions – at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 7th through the 10th.
Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) provides gallium nitride-based power devices for Solace Power’s 250 W wireless power platforms to enable higher power solutions and faster design cycle times.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.— September 2019 — EPC announces collaboration with Solace Power, a leading wireless power, sense and data company, to enable 250-watt wireless power solutions designed for 5G, aerospace, automotive, medical, and industrial applications. Solace Power’s intelligent wireless platform use EPC’s 200 V enhancement-mode gallium nitride (eGaN®) power transistors. This modular platform shares the same Equus™ architecture and enables up to 250 Watts of transmitted power with superior six degrees of spatial freedom.
It is expected that there will be more than 175 zettabytes of data by 2025. Data center construction and deployment, as well as upgrading efforts in existing older ones, is booming with the advent of 5G, starting in earnest at the 2020 Olympics in Japan (6G is already being discussed for future development) and the growth of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
It makes so much sense to me that GaN should be the power transistor of choice in Data Center power architectures where size, efficiency and speed are critical. In all the topologies with 48 VIN, the highest efficiency was achieved with GaN devices.
This year’s PCIM Europe was attended by a record number of visitors, over 12,000. Over half (54%) were from outside Germany. They came to see over 500 exhibitors and while the subject matter was diverse and wide-ranging, there were some themes that emerged. GaN and SiC jostled for attention at this year’s PCIM Europe. Showing the potential that GaN has already realised, Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) had a stand that was well-stocked with examples of the eGaN FET technology that the company introduced in 2009.
Workshop on Wireless Power Transfer event features industry leaders from AirFuel Alliance, Efficient Power Conversion Corp, jjPLUS and IHS Market
Taipei, Taiwan – October 30, 2018 – There is increasing demand for medium and high-power wireless power transfer (WPT) for new applications such as 5G, notebooks, robots, machine tools and medical equipment. What will be the next killer application for wireless power?
eGaN technology is expected to be one of the most important solutions to power efficiency in base station infrastructure for 5G; the peak-to-average ratios will be worse in 5G. Envelope tracking is obvious right now as one way eGaN power transistors will do this, but over the next 3 to 5 years more applications will emerge as eGaN technology progresses.
