EPC announces rad hard GaN transistors


100V and 200V power conversion solutions target spaceborne and other high-rel applications

EPC has introduced two new radiation-hardened GaN FETs. The EPC7020 is a 200 V, 11 mΩ, 170 APulsed rad-hard GaN FET in a 12 mm2 footprint. The EPC7003 is a 100 V, 30 mΩ, 42 APulsed rad-hard GaN FET in a 1.87 mm2 footprint.

Both devices have a total dose radiation rating greater than 1,000K Rad(Si) and SEE immunity for LET of 83.7 MeV/mg/cm2 with VDS up to 100 percent of rated breakdown. These new devices, along with the rest of the Rad Hard family, EPC7019, EPC7014, EPC7004, EPC7018, EPC7007, are offered in a chip-scale package, the same as the commercial eGaN FET and IC family. Packaged versions will be available from EPC Space.

Applications benefiting from the performance and fast deployment of these devices include DC-DC power converters, motor drives, lidar, deep probes, and ion thrusters for space applications, satellites including those for LEO and GEO orbits, and avionics.

“The Rad Hard product family ranges from 40 V to 200 V and from 4 A to 530 A covering a wide range of applications in harsh environments, such as space including interplanetary scientific missions, high altitude flight, and other high reliability military applications”, said Alex Lidow, CEO, and co-founder of EPC

The EPC7020 and EPC7003 are available for engineering sampling now.
