EPC Launches 3rd Edition of GaN Textbook with Power Conversion Focus

October 3, 2019 Alix Paultre

Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) published the third edition of “GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion,” a textbook written by power conversion industry experts and published by John Wiley and Sons. The book has been substantially expanded and serves as a practical guide for understanding basic GaN transistor construction, characteristics, and a wide range of applications.

Included are:

• Discussions on the fundamental physics of these power semiconductors

• Practical guidance on layout and other circuit design considerations

• Application examples employing GaN including lidar for autonomous vehicles, DC-DC power

conversion, RF envelope tracking used in 5G communication networks, wireless power, class-D

audio, and high radiation environments

With over 90 years of experience in power transistor design, all four authors are pioneers in GaN transistor technology, with Dr. Alex Lidow concentrating on transistor process design and Drs. Michael DeRooij, Johan Strydom and David Reusch, and John Glaser focusing on power transistor applications.
