EPC9126 LiDAR Demo

100 V High Current Pulsed Laser Diode Driver Demo Board

EPC9126 LiDAR Demo

The EPC9126 development board is primarily intended to drive laser diodes with high current pulses with total pulse widths as low as 5 ns (10% of peak). The board is shipped with an EPC2016C enhancement mode (eGaN®) field effect transistor (FET), a 100 V maximum device voltage capable of current pulses up to 75 A. The board does not include a laser diode, which must be supplied by the user.

The EPC9126 is shipped with an EPC2016C ground-referenced eGaN FET driven by a Texas Instruments UCC27611 gate driver. It includes multiple options for mounting laser diodes and can drive these via a discharging capacitor (as shipped) or directly from a power bus.
