Anglia Components signs EPC for UK and Ireland
Anglia Components has signed a distribution agreement with GaN-based power management specialist, EPC (Efficient Power Conversion), covering the UK and Ireland.
EPC’s enhancement mode GaN (eGaN) FETs and ICs will be part of Anglia‘s portfolio, which includes mainstream power technologies, including silicon mosfet and SiC as well as GaN. The distributor said that the new signing enhances its range particularly in the low voltage (sub-400V) market, where eGaN can be used to lower system cost, raise performance and increase power density.
John Bowman, marketing director of Anglia, said: “Power is attracting considerable focus from our customers at the moment. Their concern is driven both by environmental and economic considerations. EPC impressed us as a company that is pro-active in its approach to the market, anticipating customers questions about adopting this technology and helping them on the design journey to a smaller, more efficient system design. Our FAE team is benefitting from this approach as they undergo comprehensive and in-depth training on the range.”
Stefan Werkstetter, vice president sales, EMEA at EPC is looking added that the distributor’s FAE team and traction in the UK and Ireland will bring benefits from “strong local expertise and wide and deep customer relationships in their region”.
“Our eGaN technology is widely applicable in industrial applications, including dc-dc converters, motor drive, medical, wireless power, server, 5G, solar, class-D audio and general comms infrastructure designs,” he said, “All areas where Anglia is strong. We believe that they will be very successful in collaborating with customers to ensure that they achieve the potential that eGaN technology can offer.”
