GaN Power Design Webinar Series with EPC

We are hosting a series of free GaN Power Design webinars with Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) starting from 11th May 2021.

EPC webinars exhibit over 60 years of combined experience in advanced power management technology. From understanding critical design aspects to GaN power device reliability to identifying the value of GaN, EPC webinars help engineers in their next design and understand the nutshell advantages of GaN.

The webinars cover GaN Power Design in suitable applications such as automotive systems, motor drives, medical, satellites and high-density computing.

GaN Power Design Webinars:


The webinars will be presented by Marco Palma, Director, Motor Control Systems & Applications at EPC.


At the end of each session, there will be an opportunity for Q&As. However, to ensure your question will be covered efficiently, feel free to submit your question(s) below before the webinar or email

    Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC)

    Solid State Supplies is pleased to welcome Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) as a new addition to our product offering. EPC is headquartered in California, USA, and was founded by Dr Alex Lidow, co-inventor of the HEXFET and formerly CEO of International Rectifier.  

    EPC is the leader in Gallium Nitride (GaN) based power components; GaN is a wide bandgap semiconductor material which is ideally suited to displace conventional Silicon MOSFETs.

    Tom Freeman, Product Manager at Solid State Supplies said “wide band gap semiconductor technologies such as GaN promise to play a key role in the green energy revolution, increasing efficiency significantly over traditional Silicon. Our partnership with EPC allows us to engage with this fast-growing market which is critical to the future of the UK electronics industry”.

    The key advantages of GaN semiconductors over traditional silicon semiconductors are:

    • Lower on resistance giving lower conductance losses
    • Faster devices yielding fewer switching losses
    • Less capacitance resulting in fewer losses when charging/discharging devices
    • Less power required to drive the circuit
    • Smaller devices meaning less space is taken on the printed circuit board (PCB)
    • GaN is inherently significantly more resistant to radiation effects

    “Solid State Supplies’ knowledge of the market, along with their extensive history and proven successful track record for working with customers make them a perfect partner to represent EPC’s industry-leading, off-the-shelf eGaN FET and IC product line,” commented Nick Cataldo, EPC vice president of sales and marketing.

    About EPC

    EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs. EPC also has a growing portfolio of eGaN-based integrated circuits that provide even greater space, energy, and cost efficiency.
