An Israeli company called Check-Cap has developed a small capsule that after being swallowed, actually performs a colonoscopy. GaN's small size and high efficiency - compared with silicon – allowed Check-Cap to shrink an X-Ray machine down to a size that could fit into a digestible pill.
The world’s first “Colonoscopy Capsule” is made possible by a new type of microchip from EPC that uses gallium nitride instead of the traditional silicon.
I invited Dr. Alex Lidow, CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion onto the show to talk about the technology that enabled Check-Cap to shrink an X-Ray machine down to a size that could fit into a digestible pill.
