Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, the world’s leader in enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN®) power transistors will be presenting an application-focused presentation at PCIM Asia highlighting the efficiency advantage of using eGaN FETs in wireless power transfer. The conference will be held in Shanghai, China from June 17th through the 19th.
In this presentation, EPC will demonstrate the ability of eGaN FETs to be employed in a class-E wireless energy transfer system that shows a 20 percentage point improvement in peak efficiency over a voltage-mode class-D version using the same coils and device load. The designs operate with loosely coupled coils in the 6.78 MHz ISM band.
The experimental example demonstrates why the superior characteristics of the eGaN FETs, such as low input and output capacitance, low package inductances, and small size, make them an ideal choice for wireless power systems. The experimental unit was designed to deliver up to 30 W and the EPC2012 eGaN FET allows the class-E system to operate at optimum conversion efficiency. EPC will also demonstrate an even more efficient new topology that is able to operate with improved stability and reduced component counts compared with the Class E example.
“Wireless energy transfer will be one of the largest and fastest growing markets for power components over the next ten years. We believe eGaN FETs offer the lowest cost, most stable and highest efficiency solution available today,” said Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO.
Technical Presentation Featuring GaN FETs by EPC Expert:
- "Performance Evaluation of eGaN® FETs in Low Power High Frequency Class E Wireless Energy Converter"
|Date/Time:||Tuesday, June 17th at 10.35 a.m. – 11.00 a.m.|
|Venue:||Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center|
|Session:||Oral Session – Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor|
|Presenter:||Michael de Rooij, Executive Director, Application Engineering|
Attendees interested in meeting with EPC applications experts during the event can send a request to [email protected].

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 DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, solar micro inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Effectively SMBs and government programs must address compounded regulatory compliance requirements. The most recent are Controlled Unclassified Information and the EU’s GDPR have Board Level implications. Managing sensitive data protection will likely result in acquisition criteria, demonstration requests and new requirements. Developers, as part of the pre-planning process and the associated supply chain, could benefit from updating their code libraries and design by incorporating changes.
