GaN Technology – The Present and Future Evolution


Written by:

Thursday, October 12, 2023 11:20 AM – 11:50 AM
Location: Shenzhen, China

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

GaN power devices have been in mass production since 2010 and now the base GaN technology is orders of magnitude better than the silicon theoretical limit and still far from the GaN theoretical limit. GaN devices provide higher efficiency, eliminate many of the layout and ecosystem concerns, shorten design time to market, lower component count, save precious PCB area, and reduce cost. In this talk, we will give examples of GaN performance in AI server DC-DC power supplies, lidar systems, and motor drives. We will also give a GaN roadmap for the next few years.

GaN Adoption: Breaking Down the Barriers to Widespread Acceptance


Written by:

Wednesday, October 4, 2023 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM Eastern Time
Location: Online

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

After more than 13 years of mass production, GaN-on-Si has gained widespread acceptance as the successor to the aging silicon MOSFET for voltage ranging between 40 V and 650 V. What, therefore, are the variables controlling the rate of growth of GaN power devices. We will dig into the experience, and lessons learned from the power MOSFET as well as the recent experiences with GaN in applications ranging from DC-DC conversion to motor drives and lidar in markets such as space, automotive, enterprise computing, and consumer products.
