EPC To Highlight Benefits Of GaN Over Silicon

At the 2014 APEC power electronics industry conference, EPC will make presentations on GaN FET technology and applications showing the superiority of GaN transistors over silicon power MOSFETs
Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) will be presenting three application-focused technical presentations at APEC 2014.

Participants will learn about high frequency resonant converter, and high-frequency, hard-switched power converter design. The conference will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, from March 16th to the 20th.

The Applied Power Electronics event, APEC, focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. It is a conference for practicing power electronics professionals, addressing a broad range of topics in the use, design, manufacture and marketing of all kinds of power electronics components and equipment.

“We are honoured that the technical review committee of APEC 2014 has selected EPC experts to give technical papers focusing on GaN technology at their annual conference. This selection supports our belief that the superior performance of GaN technology has gained the interest and acceptance of power system design engineers," says Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO.

Technical presentations featuring GaN FETs by EPC experts include:

“Evaluation of Gallium Nitride Transistors in High Frequency Resonant and Soft-Switching DC-DC Converters," by David Reusch and Johan Strydom on Wednesday, March 19th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (TO9-Wide Bandgap Devices in DC-DC Converters)

“GaN: Raising the Bar for Power Conversion Performance," by David Reusch on Thursday, March 20th from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (IS2-4-3, Wide Band Gap Devices)

“Design and Evaluation of a 10 MHz Gallium Nitride Based 42 V DC-DC Converter," by Johan Strydom and David Reusch on Thursday, March 20th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m (T30-Semiconductor Devices, Track: Devices and Components)

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
