EPC to Showcase GaN Products at CES in Las Vegas

For the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) will host a hospitality suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, January 5th through the 8th. The company will showcase EPC gallium nitride (GaN) products and development boards in addition to end-user applications that employ eGaN FETs and ICs.

Also, EPC experts will be available to discuss end-user demonstrations for at home and in car applications. For example, the company will show off wireless power systems embedded in furniture, and a free-standing wirelessly powered LED big screen TV will give a glimpse of the wirelessly-powered home of the future.

An ingestible pill containing a miniature x-ray system will reveal how patients will soon be able to get a colonoscopy without the need for purging or an invasive procedure. A real-time imaging sensor system for 3-D LiDAR will demonstrate the technology at the core of autonomous vehicles. The LiDAR demonstration will highlight how the speed of GaN significantly improves image location and resolution.

Also, EPC technology will be on display at the AirFuel Alliance exhibit booth (Tech West, Sands Expo, Level 2, Halls A-D, booth #41139), where EPC will be demonstrating the use of eGaN devices that enable the AirFuel standard 33W, Class 4/ category 4, wireless-charging system. This Class 4 system can charge tablets and cell phone handsets simultaneously. Also at the Air Fuel booth, an eGaN-based multi-mode wireless-charging transfer system which can charge devices regardless of the standard of the receiving device will be on display in the AirFuel booth.
