Matching Driver IC And FETs Bring GaN Benefits To Low-Voltage POL Converters
This article demonstrates the performance improvements that can be obtained when using GaN FETs in combination with suitable GaN FET drivers in 12-V input to 1-V output point-of-load converters. The example design described here uses the uP1966D, a dual-channel, synchronous driver IC from uPI Semiconductor in combination with an EPC2100 GaN asymmetrical half-bridge FET from Efficient Power Conversion.
