EPC and ASD partner to speed customer designs from conception to manufacturing for eGaN-based wireless power charging applications

Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA - which makes enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN) power field-effect transistors (FETs) for power management applications - has joined forces with Hong-Kong-based ASD Technology Ltd, which delivers solutions for applications using eGaN technology.

EPC develops technology for displacing incumbent MOSFETs with eGaN FET and ICs that offer significant advantages in end-applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology and Class-D audio amplifiers.

Focused on imaging electronic components, ASD has over 14 years of experience in providing comprehensive customer solutions, from concept development to product manufacturing. The firm offers design and manufacturing services to those seeking products for shipments worldwide to customers in global markets including the USA, Europe and Greater China.

"Delivering innovative solutions while reducing time to market has been a challenge for many customers, especially when new technologies are involved," says ASD's CEO Patrick Lee. "The potential of the gallium nitride technology will lead the next uptake of the semiconductor industry, while customers also look for effective solutions from product conception to development and to manufacturing," he believes. "We are very excited to be able to partner with EPC by integrating its state-of-the-art eGaN technology with sophisticated designs for our customers who engage us to innovate hand-in-hand from conception to implementation," he adds.

"We have been looking for business partners who have extensive, proven system design experience from conception to implementation by supporting the ever-growing market demand for eGaN technology," says EPC's CEO & co-founder Alex Lidow. "In quarters ahead, we look forward to EPC and ASD's value-added partnership, which can support customers in their eGaN-based wireless charging designs and other applications while expanding our joint GaN business development worldwide," he adds. "We can see the markets for GaN-based products have been growing fast, and GaN-based applications are expected to displace MOSFET-based applications going forward."
