Efficient Power Conversion Corporation Key Developments

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation Announces Availability of Complete Demonstration Multi-Mode Wireless Power Charging Kit, the EPC9121

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation announced the availability of a complete demonstration multi-mode wireless power charging kit, the EPC9121. The purpose of this demonstration kit is to simplify the evaluation process of using eGaN FETs and ICs for highly efficient multi-mode wireless power charging systems that can cut across any standard used in the receiving units. Wireless power has arrived, but along with its emergence are two industry standards to which end products are being built the Wireless Power Consortium (Qi) standard and the AirFuel Alliance standard. These two standards are based upon two different technologies for accomplishing wireless power charging. The Qi standard, based on inductive coupling technology, uses a low frequency. A multi-mode source coil (transmit coil) compatible with both the AirFuel Class 2 standard and Qi (A6)/PMA standards.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation Introduces EPC9059 Half-Bridge Development Board to Reduce Size in Point-Of-Load Applications

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) introduced the EPC9059 half-bridge development board for high current, high frequency point-of-load (POL) applications using eGaN ICs to reduce power conversion size. The EPC9059 development board has a 30 V maximum device voltage with a 50 A maximum output current. In this application two 30 V EPC2100 eGaN IC’s operating in parallel with a single onboard gate driver to achieve higher output currents. GaN devices have superior current sharing capability compared to silicon MOSFETs, making them more attractive for parallel operation. The total system efficiency of this board operating with 12 V input to 1 V output with a switching frequency of 1 MHz peaks near 90%. It runs with natural convection and no heatsink up to 32 A, and at heavy load condition of 40 A showed a 2.5% efficiency advantage over silicon based DrMOS solutions, which translates to an almost 20% reduction in total system power loss. This board demonstrates how eGaN technology enables smaller size, higher efficiency, and higher power density at the higher frequencies and higher currents required in next generation point-of-load converters.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation Launches GaN-Based Differential Mode Development Boards

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation announced high efficiency, GaN-based differential mode development boards that can operate up to 30 MHz. These development boards are designed for class-E applications, such as wireless charging, but can be used for any application where a low-side switch is utilized. Examples include, but are not limited to, push-pull converters, current-mode class-D amplifiers, common source bi-directional switch, and generic high voltage narrow pulse width applications such as LiDAR. These development boards feature 200 V rated eGaN FETs. 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. All three boards have common preference specifications. The operating load conditions, including configuration, determine the optimal design load voltage and resistance. The three boards’ part numbers are EPC9052, EPC9053 and EPC9054. The EPC9052/9053/9054 are priced at $158.13 each and are available for immediate delivery from Digi-Key.
