Gallium nitride FET maker EPC increases European presence

July 28, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) has signed Ismosys as its sales, marketing, and technical support partner for Europe. EPC anticipates that Ismosys will assist customers in adopting eGaN FETs and ICs for power conversion systems using gallium nitride.

Nigel Watts, Managing Director of Ismosys, comments, “Our new partnership with EPC is an exciting addition to our portfolio and will allow us to bring leading edge power solutions to Europe. Gallium nitride technologies are an exciting innovation and will enable the design houses we are partnered with and the wider European design community to embrace GaN and produce really exciting, high performance designs.” Ismosys, founded in 1994, operates 10 regional offices covering the entire EMEA plus a significant centralized resource for technical support.

EPC produces enhancement-mode gallium nitride based power management devices, with the claim to have been first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements. Applications include 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.
