EPC 100V eGaN Power Transistor for Power Conversion, Lidar Applications

Article By : Efficient Power Conversion

EPC's EPC2070 offers power systems designers a 100V, 23mΩ, power transistor capable of 34A pulsed in an extremely small chip-scale package.

Efficient Power Conversion’s (EPC) EPC2070 is a 100V GaN transistor with a maximum RDS(on) of 23mΩ and a 34A pulsed output current for high efficiency power conversion in a tiny 1.1mm2 footprint.

Applications demanding higher efficiency and power density no longer have to choose between size and performance. In addition, the low cost of the EPC2070 brings the performance of GaN FETs at a price comparable to silicon MOSFETs. Applications benefiting from this performance, small size, and low cost include 48V input power converters up to 60W for computing and telecom systems, Time of flight (ToF) modules using VSCEL lasers for camera modules, laptops and smart phones, LED Lighting, and Class-D audio.

“The ability of eGaN based power devices to operate efficiently at high frequency widens the performance and cost gap with silicon. The 100V, EPC2070, is a great addition to our 5th generation family of products offering designers the ability to go to higher power densities than what is possible with silicon MOSFETs,” said Alex Lidow, EPC’s CEO.

The EPC90141 development board is a 100V maximum device voltage half bridge with onboard gate drives, featuring the EPC2070 eGaN FETs. This 2” x 2” (50.8-by-50.8mm) board is designed for optimal switching performance and contains all critical components for easy evaluation of the EPC2070.
