GaN devices and applications form the focus of the new book, GaN Power Devices and Applications, from EPC.
Efficient Power Conversion Corp. (EPC) has released a valuable learning resource for professional engineers, systems designers, and electrical engineering students seeking the latest information on gallium nitride technology and applications.
Since the 2019 release of the third edition textbook, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, published by J. Wiley, there has been rapid adoption of gallium nitride (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. The new book, GaN Power Devices and Applications, provides an update on GaN technology and applications by leading experts.
With contributions from nearly 30 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 third 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 so that readers can link to the very latest information on GaN as it emerges.”
