EPC2049 GaN power transistor offers power systems designers a 40 V, 5 mΩ power transistor about 8 times smaller than equivalently rated silicon MOSFETs for point of load converters, LiDAR, and low inductance motor drive.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — December 2017 — EPC announces the EPC2049 power transistor for use in applications including point of load converters, LiDAR, envelope tracking power supplies, class-D audio, and low inductance motor drives. The EPC2049 has a voltage rating of 40 V and maximum RDS(on) of 5 mΩ with a 175 A pulsed output current.
Within the AirFuelTM Alliance booth at CES 2018, EPC will show how gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors are at the core of large surface area wireless power. In the EPC hospitality suite, wirelessly powered systems for the home and GaN based, industry-leading LiDAR systems used in autonomous vehicles will be on display.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — December 2017 — Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) will be demonstrating the power of eGaN® technology to enhance two game-changing consumer applications – wireless power and LiDAR for self-driving cars – at the 2018 ...
To ensure widespread adoption, wireless power systems need to move beyond small charging pads and become active power sources over large surface areas. For magnetic resonant systems, this demands fundamental changes in coil technology, system architecture, and power amplifiers. Gallium nitride based amplifiers have proven capable of delivering 60 W with greater than 90 percent efficiency into the transmit coil over a wide load range.
