Presented by Dr. Alex Lidow, CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion (EPC)

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.
