High-performance buck converter evaluation board with integrated semi 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-EVBHF100V buck converter evaluation board allows the user to evaluate GaN Systems’ 100V GS61008PE-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, 100V / 90A, 7-Ohm GaN E-HEMTs and high-speed GaN driver capable of 40MHz.
