Alex Lidow book signing at DESIGN West 2013

-April 17, 2013

Alex Lidow will be having a book signing at UBM’s booth at DESIGN West 2013 from 1 PM to 1:45 PM.

The book is “GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion”

Authors: Alex Lidow (Author), Johan Strydom (Author), Michael de Rooij (Author), and Yanping Ma (Author)


Here is a great opportunity to meet some of the best design minds in the power industry.

This textbook provides power system design engineers basic technical and application-focused information on how to design more efficient power conversion systems using gallium nitride-based transistors. As a practical guide for power systems design engineers, it provides insights on the use of GaN transistors in power electronics applications, ranging from buck converters to Power over Ethernet.

Also included are discussions on fundamental power engineering subjects such as; performance characteristics of GaN transistors, layout considerations for GaN circuits, paralleling GaN transistors and driver IC requirements for GaN transistors. The final chapters address GaN device reliability, their exceptional radiation-resistant characteristics as well as their future in power electronics.

Here are some chapters previously published on EDN:

Chapter 1

Chapter 5

Chapter 6


DESIGN West, April 22-25, in San Jose, is hosted by UBM Tech.  Register here.
