Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, the world’s leader in enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN®) power FETs, will be presenting an educational seminar and several application-focused technical presentations at APEC 2013. The conference will be held in Long Beach, California from March 17th through the 21st.
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.

“We are honored that the technical review committee of APEC 2013 has selected EPC experts to conduct an educational seminar and to give technical papers focusing on GaN technology at their annual conference. This selection supports our belief that the superior performance of GaN technology has gained the interest and acceptance of power system design engineers,” said Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO.
Educational Seminar: GaN
Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion
Sunday, March 17 (S.7, 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
Expanding on the GaN FET technology textbook written by EPC, this seminar will explain how GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT) work. This session will discuss how to use these devices including showing the drivers, layout, and thermal considerations for high performance and high frequency power conversion. To showcase the real-world value of GaN technology, several applications including high frequency envelope tracking (ET), Intermediate Bus Converters (IBC), and wireless power transmission will be presented. The seminar will conclude with a look at the future of this emerging displacement technology.

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.
