IEEE To Host Webinar By EPC On GaN FETs
On September 3rd, IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) will offer a webinar discussing the contribution of GaN power transistors to meet the demanding system bandwidth requirements of envelope tracking power circuit design and applications.
Presented by Johan Strydom, an expert on the subject from the company Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), the webinar will run from 11.00 am to 12.00 pm (EDT).
Discrete GaN power devices can offer superior hard-switching performance to MOSFETs and are considered important in the development of switching converters for envelope tracking. In this seminar, Strydom will present the latest family of high frequency enhancement-mode GaN transistors on silicon (eGaN FETs) in a few multi-megahertz buck converters. He will also discuss different system-level parasitics and evaluate their impact based on the experimental results.
Johan Strydom, EPC's vice president of applications engineering, is widely published in the industry, including being co-author of GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, the first textbook on the design and applications of GaN transistors.
