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

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
