EPC published a new DC-DC conversion handbook as a guide for power engineers showing how to achieve increase in efficiency and power density in datacom equipment and other power conversion applications using gallium nitride (GaN) power transistors.
DC-DC Handbook provides details on use of high performance GaN technology by taking reader through step-by-step analysis of how to create power conversion solutions using GaN devices. The analysis makes direct performance comparisons with state-of-the-art silicon power transistors (MOSFETs) traditionally used in power conversion systems.
"Combining the discussion of power conversion systems architectures and the superior performance of GaN technology, the book introduces a new power delivery architecture that takes advantage of the superior performance attributes of GaN- showing the increased power density that can be achieved with high frequency switching." says EPC.
