EPC9083: High Frequency Class-E Power Amplifier

EPC9083 Development Board

The EPC9083 is a high efficiency, differential mode class-E amplifier demonstration board that can operate up to 15 MHz.

This board may also be used for applications where a low side switch is utilized. Examples include, and 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.

The amplifier board features the 200 V rated EPC2046 eGaN FET. The amplifier is set to operate in differential mode and can be re-configured to operate in single-ended mode and includes the gate driver and logic supply regulator.

* Assumes inductive load, maximum current depends on die temperature – actual maximum current will be subject to switching frequency, bus voltage and thermal cooling.
# Dependent on time needed to ‘refresh’ high side bootstrap supply voltage.
