EPC showcasing eGaN-based applications at CES

In a dedicated hospitality suite in the Mandalay Bay hotel at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2017) in Las Vegas (5-8 January), 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 – is showcasing how GaN is a core technology behind autonomous vehicles, the house of the future without power cords, the connected car, and non-invasive colonoscopies (via an x-ray system within a pill).

Within the suite are end-user application units enabled by eGaN FETs and ICs as well as EPC's GaN products and development boards. EPC personnel will be available to discuss demonstrations of end-user applications in the home and in the car. For example, wireless power systems embedded in furniture and a free-standing wirelessly powered LED big-screen TV will show demonstrate the wirelessly powered home of the future; an ingestible pill containing a miniature x-ray system will show how a colonoscopy can be performed without the need for purging or an invasive procedure; and a real-time 3D LiDAR (light detection and ranging) imaging sensor system demonstrating the technology at the core of autonomous vehicles will highlight how the speed of GaN significantly improves image location and resolution.

Also, in the AirFuel Alliance booth #41139 (Tech West, Sands Expo, Level 2, Halls A-D), EPC is demonstrating the use of eGaN devices in an AirFuel-standard 33W, Class 4/ category 4 wireless-charging system, which will show the ability to charge tablets and cell-phone handsets simultaneously. In addition, an eGaN-based multi-mode wireless-charging transfer system capable of charging devices regardless of the standard used in the receiving device will be on display.
