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 https://epc-co.com/epc/products/demo-boards
Price and Availability
The EPC9065 is priced at $414.00 each and are available for immediate delivery from Digi-Key at https://www.digikey.com/en/supplier-centers/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.
