Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) Market Leading eGaN® Power Transistors Recognized as EDN Magazine Hot 100 Product for 2013
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Efficient Power Conversion Corporation, (www.epc-co.com)
the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride FET technology, announces
today that its EPC8000 family of high frequency eGaN FETs has been
recognized with inclusion in the EDN list of 100 Hot Products for
"We are very excited that EDN, an industry-leading magazine, has
recognized our innovative new family of eGaN FETs. These devices take
EPC and gallium nitride transistor technology to a level of performance
that enables applications that were previously beyond the capability of
silicon MOSFETs. The EPC8000 eGaN FETs blur the line between power and
RF transistor technology," said Alex Lidow, EPC's co-founder and CEO.
These third generation devices have cut new ground for power transistors
with switching transition speeds in the sub nano-second range. They are
capable of hard switching applications even beyond the 10MHz for which
they were designed. These products exhibit very good small signal RF
performance with high gain well into the low GHz range, making them a
competitive choice for RF applications.
Examples of applications benefiting from the low power, compact, high
frequency EPC8000 family of devices include hard-switching power
converters operating in the multi-megahertz range, envelope tracking in
RF power amplifiers using EPC8005, highly resonant wireless power
transfer systems for wireless charging of mobile devices.
EPC is the leader in enhanement 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
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.
