An evaluation board developed by GaN Systems and pSemi is available with full design support at distributor Richardson RFPD. 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 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 include universal GaN half-bridge with open loop control, ultra-fast switching times of < 1 ns, dead-time control, independent of Vcc and 100 V / 90 A, 7 mΩ GaN E-HEMTs
