EPC to demo 500W high-power-density GaN-based eighth brick DC-DC converter

In booth #1405 at the 30th annual IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference & Exposition (APEC 2015) in Charlotte, North Carolina (15-19 March), Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA, which makes enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN) power field-effect transistors (FETs) for power management applications, is exhibiting its latest eGaN products and demonstration boards. These include an A4WP-compliant 6.78MHz wireless power amplifier demonstration, a 500W high-power-density eighth brick DC-DC converter, and monolithic integrated GaN half-bridge devices. EPC is also introducing what is claimed to be an industry-first handbook for wireless power amplifier design (the latest addition to the EPC library of GaN technology textbooks).

In addition, at the APEC 2015 conference, EPC's GaN applications experts are giving the following eight technical presentations:
