Availability and full design support capabilities for a new evaluation board from GaN Systems and Peregrine Semiconductor has been announced by Richardson RFPD. The GS61004B-EVBCD evaluation board combines GaN Systems’ GaN E-HEMT with the ultra-fast PE29102 gate driver from Peregrine.
Using this evaluation platform, designers can characterise the performance advantages that result from operating a Class D amplifier at a high switching frequency.
Low dead time and sub-nanosecond turn-on/off yield a higher-efficiency design with less total harmonic distortion and EMI.
Additional key features of the GS61004B-EVBCD include:
