EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 Darnell’s Energy Summit 2013. The conference will be held in Dallas, Texas, from September 9th through the 12th.
“GaN: Crushing Silicon One Application at a Time”
This summit combines efficient power conversion, green building design and smart grid electronics into a single conference. The presentations will focus on advanced power conversion technologies needed for the successful development of next-generation power systems. It is a solutions-oriented event, with a strong emphasis on practical advances in power electronics and energy efficiency.
“It is noteworthy that the Darnell Energy Summit has selected EPC experts to conduct an educational seminar and to give technical papers focusing on GaN technology at their conference. This selection continues to demonstrate the superior performance of GaN technology has gained the interest and acceptance of those interested in improving energy efficiency,” said Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO.
Seminar: GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion
Presenter: Alex Lidow and David Reusch
Monday, September 9th (9:00 a.m. – 12:30 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 also 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 efficient DC-DC conversion, high frequency envelope tracking, and wireless power transfer, 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 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.
