100 W, 92% Efficient eGaN FET Development Board from Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) for the 6.78 MHz  AirFuel Wireless Power Standard

EPC9065 development board has the highest power and highest efficiency at 6.78 MHz for the AirFuelTM wireless power standard, using eGaN® FETs

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.— February 2016 — Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) announces the EPC9065, a development board that can serve as the amplifier stage for AirFuelTM Alliance Class 4 and Class 5 wireless power transfer applications. This board is a Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) differential-mode class-D amplifier development board configured at, but is not limited to, 6.78 MHz (Lowest ISM band).

The EPC9065 includes all the critical components, including two screw-mounted heat sinks for increased power capability. It can be easily connected into an existing system to speed end-product time to market.

This development board features the EPC2007C and the EPC8010, which are 100 V rated enhancement-mode gallium nitride FETs. The EPC2007C is used in the class-D amplifier while the EPC8010 is used as a synchronous bootstrap FET. The amplifier can be set to operate in either differential or single-ended mode and includes the gate drivers, a 6.78 MHz oscillator, and a separate heat sink for each Class-D section.

Quick Start Guides, containing set-up procedures, circuit diagram, bill of material and Gerber files for the boards are provided on-line at http://epc-co.com/epc/Products/DemoBoards.aspx

Price and Availability

The EPC9065 is priced at $414.00 each and are available for immediate delivery from Digi-Key at http://www.digikey.com/Suppliers/us/Efficient-Power-Conversion.page?lang=en

About EPC

EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
