The EPC9126 and EPC9126HC development boards are primarily intended to drive laser diodes with high current pulses with total pulse widths as low as 5 ns (10% of peak).
The EPC9126 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 EPC9126HC board is shipped with an EPC2001C eGaN FET, a 100 V maximum device voltage capable of current pulses up to 150 A.
The boards are shipped with a ground-referenced eGaN FET driven by a Texas Instruments UCC27611 gate driver. Boards include multiple options for mounting laser diodes and can drive these via a discharging capacitor (as shipped) or directly from a power bus. The boards do not include a laser diode, which must be supplied by the user.
