Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) Experts to Demonstrate How eGaN FETs Increase Efficiency by 20% in Wireless Power Applications at Key Power Industry Conferences in Asia

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, the world’s leader in enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN®) power transistors, will be making presentations at three industry-leading power conferences in Asia.

At two conferences in Shanghai, China on March 18th, EPC technical experts will be presenting how gallium nitride (GaN) power devices have emerged as higher efficiency replacements for the aging silicon (Si) power MOSFETs. Specifically, increases in performance offered by eGaN FETs in wireless power transfer (WiPo) applications will be presented. Examples of increased performances include a new power conversion design that delivers up to 20% improvement in efficiency and a second design delivering up to 30 W operating with loosely coupled coils in the 6.78 MHz ISM band.

On April 10, EPC’s CEO and Co-founder Dr. Alex Lidow will be giving an update on GaN technology entitled, "Crushing Silicon with GaN." This presentation will highlight key new applications, latest products on the market, latest road maps into the future, and the relative competitive position of GaN with the power MOSFET and silicon carbide.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
