EPC to Showcase GaN FETs and ICs in End Products at APEC

February 16, 2018 by Paul Shepard

The Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) team will be delivering seven technical presentations on gallium-nitride (GaN) technology and applications at APEC 2018 in San Antonio, Texas from March 4th through the 8th. In addition, the company will demonstrate its latest eGaN FETs and ICs in customers’ end products that are enabled by eGaN technology.

EPC will exhibit live demonstrations showing how GaN technology’s superior performance is transforming power delivery for entire industries including computing, communications, and automotive.

In the company’s booth, #1255, demonstrations will include a high-power density 48V-to-12V non-isolated converter capable of delivering over 700W. In addition, a range of 3-D real-time LiDAR imaging sensors used in autonomous vehicles will be displayed.

Also, a single desktop implementing a high power resonant wireless charging solution capable of generating 300 W to wirelessly power a wide range of devices including cell phones, notebook computers, monitors, wireless speakers, smart watches, and table lamps.
