Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) Receives 2018 Top 10 Power Products Award from Electronic Products China Magazine/21iC Media


Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) has successfully completed
automotive AEC Q101 qualification for EPC2202 and EPC2203 gallium
nitride devices, opening a range of applications in automotive and other
harsh environments

Power Conversion
Corporation's AEC Q101-qualified EPC2202
and EPC2203
have been honored with an Electronic Products China / 21iC Media's
"Top 10 Power Products – Technology Breakthrough Award." The award
presentation was announced on September 13th, 2018, in
Beijing, China, during 21iC Power Conference 2018.

Electronic Products China/ 21iC Media under the global Aspencore
— a leading trade publication for electronic design engineers
— evaluated a significant number of products launched from July 2nd,
2017, to July 1st, 2018. The winning products were selected
on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology
or its application, as well as substantial achievement in the products'
price and performance.

eGaN technology has been in mass production for over eight years,
accumulating billions of hours of successful field experience in automotive
, such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and radar
for autonomous cars, 48 V – 12 V DC-DC converters, high intensity
headlamps for trucks and ultra-high-fidelity infotainment systems.

and EPC2203
are the first two EPC products which completed AEC Q101 qualification
testing. The EPC2202
is an 80 V, 16 mΩ enhancement-mode FET with a pulsed current rating of
75 A in a 2.1mm x 1.6mm chip-scale package. The EPC2203
is an 80 V, 73 mΩ part with a pulsed current rating of 18 A in a 0.9mm x
0.9mm chip-scale package. These eGaN FETs are many times smaller and
achieve switching speeds 10 – 100 times faster than their silicon MOSFET

"We are very proud that the panel of judges of Electronic Products
China/21iC Media
has recognized our AEC 101-qualified EPC2202
and EPC2203
eGaN FETs for their qualification for automotive applications, enabling
autonomous driving, as well as improving fuel economy and safety. This
Top 10 - Technology Breakthrough Award substantiates that eGaN
technology is the performance leader in efficient power conversion,"
said Alex Lidow, CEO and Co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion

2018 marks the 16th annual Electronic Products China's "Top 10
Power Product Awards," which recognizes the best products in the
semiconductor industry (

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
, wireless
power transfer
, envelope
, RF transmission, power
, remote
sensing technology (LiDAR)
, and class-D
audio amplifiers
with device performance many times greater than the
best silicon power MOSFETs.
