EL SEGUNDO, Calif.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (www.epc-co.com) announces the publication of the Second Edition of theWireless Power Handbook. This edition is a practical engineering handbook designed to provide power system design engineers valuable experiences and points of reference critical to understanding and designing highly efficient wireless power systems using gallium nitride transistors.

As a supplement to EPC’s GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, this updated and expanded practical guide provides step-by-step analysis on the use of GaN transistors in wireless power transfer systems. Topics covered include how to effectively compare component devices, such as eGaN FETs and MOSFETs, when used in an amplifier design. This comparison, complete with experimental verification, illustrates the superiority of eGaN FETs over MOSFETs in this high performance application.

This second edition has been expanded to include the latest work on AirFuel™ Alliance class 2 and class 3 transmitters, adaptive tuning, radiated EMI, multi-mode wireless power systems, and control strategies. There are also wireless power systems demonstrated using the latest eGaN® FETs and integrated circuits that set new efficiency benchmarks as well as reduce overall system costs. There is still much more to accomplish as this fast moving technology evolves, the purpose of this second edition is to share the latest information on the subject.

Wireless Power Handbook: a Supplement to GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, 2nd Edition is available for $39.95 and can be purchased from Digi-Key (www.digikey.com) and Amazon.com.

About EPC

EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
