EPC Announces New GaN Textbook
Textbook covers applications such as lidar, DC-DC conversion, motor drive, and low-cost satellites
Efficient Power Conversion (EPC), a developer enhancement-mode GaN on silicon (eGaN) power FETs and ICs, announces the publication of a valuable learning resource for engineers, systems designers, and electrical engineering students seeking the latest information on GaN technology and applications.
Since the 2019 release of the 3rd edition textbook, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, published by J. Wiley, there has been rapid adoption of GaN transistors and integrated circuits into a wide range of end-use applications such as robots, drones, Artificial Intelligence (AI) computers, AC adapters, autonomous vehicles, and even vacuum cleaners. This book, GaN Power Devices and Applications, provides an update on GaN technology and applications by leading experts.
With contributions from nearly thirty industry and academic experts, and edited by Alex Lidow, this book starts with two years of new information on technology developments, design techniques, and reliability beginning right after the publication of the 3rd edition textbook. In a practical sense, this book includes detailed discussion and analysis of the latest examples of actual GaN usage in power supplies, lidar, motor drives, and low-cost satellite applications.
According to Alex Lidow, EPC's co-founder and CEO, “The information contained in this new textbook will help users fully understand, by examples, the incredible contribution that GaN devices can make to innovative power systems. In addition, QR codes have been inserted at the beginning of each chapter of the book for so that readers can link to the very latest information on GaN as new it emerges.”
GaN Power Devices and Applications is available for immediate delivery from Digi-Key and Amazon.
