GaN in Space Webinar

Date(s) - 03/12/2020
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm



We are pleased to present the free ‘GaN in Space’ webinar hosted by Alex Lidow from EPC Space on Thursday 3rd December at 15:00.


In this webinar, we will show why GaN power transistors and ICs are the best choice for power conversion applications in space-based systems.


GaN devices offer dramatically improved performance over the aging Rad Hard silicon MOSFET, enabling a new generation of power converters in space operating at higher frequencies, higher efficiencies, and greater power densities than ever achievable before.  This webinar will explain why eGaN devices exhibit such superior radiation tolerance compared with silicon MOSFETs.  We explore some of the failure mechanisms in GaN and how they impact radiation performance.  We will then show how superior is the electrical performance of eGaN transistors compared with the most popular Rad Hard MOSFETs. Lastly, we will discuss some spaceborne systems where GaN is enabling higher radiation and system performance compared to silicon solutions.




Alex Lidow is CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects, including co-authoring the first textbook on GaN transistors, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, now in its third edition published by John Wiley and Sons. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech and his Ph.D. from Stanford.
