Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) to Showcase GaN Technology-Enabled Consumer Applications at All-Digital Consumer Electronics Show (CES®)

January 5, 2021 GMT

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 5, 2021--

Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) announced that it will demonstrate the power of eGaN ® technology to boost performance in game-changing consumer applications including self-driving cars, eMobility, drones, robots, and 48-volt power conversion at the All-Digital Consumer Electronics Show (CES) January 11 th through the 14 th.

Self-Driving Cars

Lidar technology has emerged as the leading technology to act as the “eyes” for self-driving cars, and the time of flight systems used for autonomous mobile robotics and last-mile delivery. GaN enables these laser-based systems to see farther, faster, and with higher resolution.

eMobility

The rapid emergence of scooters and e-bikes has opened new markets for chargers and compact motor drives. Due to their efficiency, small size, and affordability, eGaN FETs and ICs are ideal for these applications.

Drones and Robotics

eGaN ® FETs and ICs provide the highest efficiency, lightest weight, and most reliable solution for several systems within a drone, robot, or collaborative robot (cobot). In these applications, GaN components contribute to smaller and lighter motors, higher resolution time of flight, higher efficiency 48-volt power conversion for longer battery life, and wireless power for increased operation.

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.
