100 V High Current Pulsed Laser Diode Driver Demo Board
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.
