Anglia signs UK and Ireland distribution deal with EPC
The distributor adds EPC’s GaN-based power management technology to its portfolio of mainstream power technologies, which includes silicon MOSFETs and SiC. According to the distributor, addition of EPC’s enhancement mode GaN (eGaN) FETs and ICs strengthens its range particularly in the low voltage (sub-400V) market, offering engineers a selection according to the design’s size, efficiency, and cost parameters. The In many applications, EPC eGaN devices deliver lower system cost, higher performance and greater power density, added the company.

John Bowman, marketing director of Anglia, explains: "Power is attracting considerable focus from our customers at the moment. Their concern is driven both by environmental and economic considerations”. The distributor was impressed by EPC’s pro-active approach, anticipating customers questions about adopting GaN and supporting them in their designs. “Our FAE team is benefitting from this approach as they undergo comprehensive and in-depth training on the range," adds Bowman.

Stefan Werkstetter, vice president sales EMEA at EPC, comments: "We believe  in developing relationships with channel partners with strong local expertise and wide and deep customer relationships in their region. Anglia fits that mould perfectly, with an exceptional FAE team and great traction in the UK and Ireland market. 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, all areas where Anglia is strong”. He is confident that the two companies will be “very successful in collaborating with customers to ensure that they achieve the potential that eGaN technology can offer”.
