EPC announces the publication of the textbook, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, designed to provide power system design engineers with basic technical and application-focused information on how to design more efficient power conversion systems using gallium nitride-based transistors.
This comprehensive guide provides support for designers eager to incorporate the exceptional benefits of GaN technology into their designs.
This practical guide provides direction for the use of GaN transistors in widely-used power electronics applications, ranging from buck converters to Power over Ethernet. Also included are discussions referencing fundamental power engineering subjects such as performance characteristics of GaN transistors, layout considerations for GaN circuits, paralleling GaN transistors, and driver IC requirements for GaN transistors. The final chapters address GaN device reliability, and their exceptional radiation-resistant characteristics, as well as their future in power electronics.
