Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (www.epc-co.com) announces that it has been recognized with a Leading Product Award by EDN China Innovation Award 2012 in its Power Device and Module category. In its eighth year, the EDN China Innovation Award 2012 is a benchmark event for recognizing product innovation by the voting of electronics design engineers and managers worldwide.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition as an industry leading product from EDN China magazine. The EPC2012 is one member of our family of eGaN FETs being adopted by customers as higher performance replacements for silicon-based MOSFETs,” noted Alex Lidow, CEO, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation.
EPC2012 is EPC’s second-generation 200 Volt enhancement mode gallium nitride (eGaN) power transistor with high frequency switching, enhanced performance in a lead-free, RoHS package.
The EPC2012 FET is a 1.7 x 0.9 mm, 200 VDS device with a maximum RDS(ON) of 100 milliohms with 5 V applied to the gate, and a pulsed current rating of 15 A.
Compared to a state-of-the-art silicon power MOSFET with similar on-resistance, the EPC2012 is smaller and has many times superior switching performance. Applications that benefit from eGaN FET performance include RF envelope tracking, wireless power transmission, high-speed DC-DC power supplies, point-of-load converters, class D audio amplifiers, hard-switched and high frequency circuits.

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
