Buck converter evaluation board with integrated high-speed driver
Richardson RFPD has announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new evaluation board from GaN Systems and pSemi Corporation.
The GS61008P-EVBHF 100 V buck converter evaluation board allows the user to evaluate GaN Systems’ 100 V GS61008P E-Mode GaN transistor with the pSemi PE29101 gate driver in a half-bridge configuration. The PE29101 integrated high-speed driver is designed to control the gates of GaN Systems’ E-HEMTs. The outputs of the PE29101 can provide switching transition speeds in the sub-nanosecond range.
The new evaluation board’s high switching speeds enables smaller peripheral components in a variety of applications, including DC–DC conversion, AC–DC conversion, wireless power charging, and LiDAR.
Additional key features of the GS61008P-EVBHF include:
Universal GaN half-bridge with open loop control
Ultra-fast switching times: < 1 ns
Dead-time control, independent of Vcc
100 V / 90 A, 7 mΩ GaN E-HEMTs
High-speed GaN driver, capable of 40 MHz
