EPC to Showcase High Power Density eGaN® FETs and ePower™ Stage IC in Customer Applications at PCIM Europe 2020 Digital Days

Sponsored by Businesswire

The EPC team will be delivering three technical presentations and participating in two panel discussions on gallium nitride (GaN) technology and applications at the upcoming PCIM Europe 2020 Digital Days, July 7 – 8. In addition, the company will participate in the event’s virtual exhibit, showing its latest eGaN FETs and ICs in customers’ end products that are rapidly adopting eGaN technology.

In the virtual exhibit, EPC experts will be available to discuss eGaN devices in several applications including: high performance 48 V DC-DC power conversion for advanced computing and automotive applications; high power nanosecond pulsed laser drivers for lidar used in autonomous vehicles; and precision motor drives for robotics and drones.

PCIM Europe (Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion) is the leading international exhibition for power electronics, intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management. International exhibitors inform visitors about the newest products, trends and developments in the power electronics industry. PCIM Europe is the forum for technologies for the whole value chain of the power electronics industry, from the components to the intelligent system.

About EPC

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, power inverters, remote sensing technology (lidar), and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs. EPC also has a growing portfolio of eGaN-based integrated circuits that provide even greater space, energy, and cost-efficiency.
