EPC And VPT Launch Joint Space Venture

News

EPC Space will provide advanced, high-reliability, GaN power conversion components

Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) and VPT (part of HEICO), have established EPC Space LLC, a joint venture focused on designing and manufacturing radiation hardened (Rad Hard) GaN-on-silicon transistors and ICs packaged, tested, and qualified for satellite and high-reliability applications.

EPC Space will provide advanced, high-reliability, power conversion solutions for critical spaceborne environments in applications including power supplies, light detection and ranging (lidar), motor drive, and ion thrusters. These GaN-based components offer superior performance advantages over traditional silicon-based solutions.

Alex Lidow, CEO and co-founder of EPC said: “VPT's global leadership in power conversion solutions for avionics, military, and space applications is the perfect complement to EPC's leadership in GaN-based power conversion devices.” Further, Lidow said, “The joint venture - EPC Space - is taking the superior performance of gallium nitride to the high reliability community offering electrical and radiation performance beyond the capabilities of the ageing Rad Hard silicon MOSFET.”

Dan Sable, Founder and CEO of VPT commented, “EPC's GaN technology enables a new generation of power converters in space operating at higher frequencies, higher efficiencies, and greater power densities than ever achievable before. We are excited about this venture's ability to provide mission-critical components and services to our high-reliability markets.”
