Moore’s Law is Alive with GaN
Efficient Power Conversion Corporation
The performance of GaN transistors and integrated circuits is climbing up the learning curve in a way reminiscent of Moore’s Law in the go-go years of silicon. In this industry presentation we will show the significant improvements in performance enabled by a new generation of GaN technology in 48 V – 1 V single-stage conversion, wireless charging efficiency, and LiDAR system speed.
Alex Lidow is CEO of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects. He most recently co-authored, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, the first textbook on GaN FET technology and applications. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech in 1975 and his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1977.
EPC CEO and Co-Founder, Alex Lidow, discusses the life changing applications on display at CES with Bloomberg Radio. Applications such as LiDAR for autonomous cars with the potential to disrupt the transportation industry and wireless power with the potential to eliminate power cords are highlighted as well as how GaN enables these new technologies.
