Written by:

Join host Dr. Sanjay Gupta and guest Alex Lidow, CEO of Efficient Power Conversion – or EPC – in episode 5 as they explore the ways GaN is advancing the future of wireless charging. As wireless power increases in maturity and adoption, the industry needs solutions that improve performance, efficiency, and user experience. Gallium Nitride is essential to enabling higher power applications than can be achieved with traditional silicon, opening the door for charging multiple devices and more diverse devices, such as laptops, drones, robots, power tools, eBikes, and industrial equipment. Wireless charging circuits employing GaN transistors are also five to ten times smaller than silicon devices able to handle the same power levels.

On this episode of the Insomnicat Podcast, Nicolette and Bryan chat with Alex Lidow, CEO and Co- Founder of Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) about GaN technology. While many believe GaN is more costly than its predecessor, silicon, Lidow tells us that’s just a myth. Listen in as we talk about the future of GaN, the truth about Silicon’s reliability and get some advice for emerging engineers from someone who’s been in the industry for quite a while.
