Why GaN in Space Webinar
View Now: Register to receive a link to view a replay of EPC’s Why GaN in Space webinar
GaN transistors and ICs have gained major traction for high-reliability applications owing to their intrinsic radiation tolerance and superior circuit performance. In this webinar EPC and Micross will demonstrate why GaN power transistors and ICs are quickly becoming the ideal solution for power conversion applications in space-based systems.
In this webinar you will learn more about:
- The superior radiation tolerance of GaN vs. silicon
- How the failure mechanisms of GaN differ from silicon to create an inherent radiation tolerance
- Application examples where the exceptional electrical performance of GaN combined with the superior SEE immunity and radiation hardness is accelerating evolutionary advances in mission critical systems.
Speaker: Alex Lidow is CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects, including co-authoring the first textbook on GaN transistors, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, now in its third edition published by John Wiley and Sons. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech and his Ph.D. from Stanford.
