  • Welcoming new DCL members

    Hello and welcome new DCL members. Ask us anything you feel uncomfortable about in HKUST. Feel at home. The party aims to shatter the barriers between the new and the old members of the group to bring a level of understanding that will help the group prosper. So do participate and enjoy the party.

  • GaN Devices and Applications (EDS Webinar)

    Enhancement-mode gallium nitride transistors have been commercially available for over eight years and have infiltrated many applications previously monopolized by the aging silicon power MOSFET. In this presentation, we will discuss the state-of-the-art and the expected progress of GaN technology over the next few years, showing that Moore’s Law is alive and well in the world of power semiconductor technology. We will also enumerate the advantages of GaN over silicon in terms of performance, cost, and reliability. Presented by Dr. Alex Lidow, CEO of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects. He most recently co-authored, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, the first textbook on GaN FET technology and applications. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech in 1975 and his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1977.
