GaN Transistors and ICs for 48 – 12 V Bi-Directional Converters for Mild Hybrid Vehicles

Speaker: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Efficient Power Conversion

Recent advances in automotive powertrain technology have accelerated the use of a dual 48 V/12 V bus architecture in mild hybrid vehicles, which can provide an 8-15% fuel consumption reduction. The availability of a 48 V bus also enables support of heavier loads like air-conditioning, faster heating of cabin, and faster, smoother starting with the use of 48 V Li-ion batteries. GaN-on-Si power devices are the best-suited semiconductors for this application as will be shown in this talk.

GaN Reliability and Lifetime Projections

Keynote Speaker: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Efficient Power Conversion

The rapid adoption of GaN devices in many diverse applications calls for continued accumulation of reliability statistics and research into the fundamental physics of failure in GaN devices. Alex Lidow will speak about the strategy used to measure and predict lifetime based upon tests that force devices to fail under a variety of conditions. This information can be used to create stronger and higher performance products for the industry.
