EPC introduces EPC9002 development board

Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA has introduced the EPC9002 development board, which the firm says will make it easier for users designing with EPC’s 100V enhancement-mode GaN transistor products.

The EPC9002 offers 50V maximum input voltage, 7A maximum output current, half bridge with onboard gate drives, and features the EPC1001 100V GaN power transistor. EPC says that the board’s purpose is to simplify the evaluation process of the EPC1001 GaN power transistor by including all the critical components on a single board that can be easily connected into any existing converter.

At 2” x 1.5”, the EPC9002 development board contains not only two EPC1001 GaN transistors in a half bridge configuration with gate drivers, but also an on board gate drive supply and all critical components and layout for optimal switching performance. There are also various probe points to facilitate waveform measurem ent and efficiency calculation.

EPC9002 development boards are priced at $95 each, and available for immediate delivery from Digi-Key.
