EPC Introduces 60W Class-E Amplifier Development Board

News

Differential mode board uses latest generation 200V eGaN FETs and operates up to 15MHz

Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) has introduced a 60 W Class-E amplifier development board with the company's latest generation 200V eGaN FETs.

The EPC9083 development board has been designed to enable power system designers to evaluate the high efficiency achieved with a high performance 200 V GaN transistor in a class-E amplifier used in wireless power, LiDAR, current-mode class-D, and push-pull converters operating up to 15 MHz.

The GaN-based differential mode development board can operate up to 15 MHz, including 6.78 MHz which is popular for wireless power applications.

Although designed for class-E applications, such as wireless power, the board can be used for any application where a low-side switch is used. Examples include push-pull converters, current-mode class-D amplifiers, common source bi-directional switch, and high voltage narrow pulse width applications such as LiDAR.

The EPC9083 features the EPC2046, EPC's latest generation 200 V, 25 mΩ eGaN FET. The EPC2046 allows less switching loss than the previous generation of eGaN FETs, in a smaller size, while keeping the same drain-source on-resistance.

The amplifiers are set to operate in differential mode and can be re-configured to operate in single-ended mode and include the gate driver and logic supply regulator.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
