EPC to Showcase GaN Enabled Consumer Applications at CES 2024

EPC, a global leader in enhancement-mode gallium nitride (eGaN) FETs, and ICs, will be showcasing the capabilities of GaN technology at CES 2024, demonstrating its role in enhancing features and performance in consumer electronics. This includes delivering higher efficiency, smaller size, and lower cost solutions.

During CES, EPC will host guests in their hospitality suite from January 9 - January 11.  Technical staff will be available to engage with attendees, discussing the latest developments in GaN technology and its applications. Key areas where GaN is transforming high-volume consumer applications include:

Powering Artificial Intelligence: Highly efficient GaN FETs and ICs facilitate high power-density server designs, essential for meeting the advanced computational requirements of artificial intelligence and high-end gaming. This results in reduced data center energy bills, lower cooling requirements, and improving overall power usage efficiency (PUE).

eMobility (eBikes, eScooters): GaN devices play a crucial role in compact motor drives for electric bikes and scooters, contributing to increased motor efficiency, reduced size, weight, and cost. This enhances the practicality and energy efficiency of eMobility solutions.

Time-of-Flight (ToF) and Lidar Systems: GaN FETs and ICs are integral to the development of lidar systems in consumer applications, such as smartphones for computational photography and augmented reality functions. They also find applications in personal robotics and cobots for navigation and obstacle avoidance.

Drones: GaN technology contributes to the efficiency, lightweight design, and extended battery life of drones. GaN components add value to the power systems, motors, and sensors used in these devices.

Audio Systems: GaN FETs and ICs help create smaller form factor applications, overcome thermal challenges, and enhance audio performance for a superior listening experience in Class-D audio systems.
