DC-DC Conversion Handbook on GaN

September 17, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) has published the DC-DC Conversion Handbook, a practical guide to taking full advantage of the superior performance of Gallium Nitride (GaN) transistors.

The book addresses how power conversion systems will continue to improve in order to keep pace with the rapid improvements in computing power and the need for efficient data centers. With a focus on the use of high performance GaN technology, this DC-DC handbook goes through step-by-step analysis of how to create power conversion solutions using GaN devices. The analysis makes direct performance comparisons with state-of-the-art silicon power transistors traditionally used in power conversion systems.

Finally, combining the discussion of power conversion systems architectures and the superior performance of GaN technology, the book introduces a new power delivery architecture that takes advantage of the superior performance attributes of GaN – showing the increased power density that can be achieved with high frequency switching.

Authored by Dr. David Reusch, Director of Applications Engineering at EPC and Dr. John Glaser, EPC's Director of Applications Engineering, the book is available for $39.95 and can be purchased from Digi-Key ( www.digikey.com), or from Amazon.com.
