EPC Introduces a 12 V – 48 V 500 W GaN Boost Converter Demonstration with Same BOM Size as Silicon, Offering Superior Efficiency and Power Density

EPC Introduces a 12 V – 48 V 500 W GaN Boost Converter Demonstration with Same BOM Size as Silicon, Offering Superior Efficiency and Power Density

The combination of the Renesas two-phase synchronous GaN boost controller with ultra-efficient eGaN® FETs from EPC (Efficient Power Conversion) enables high power density and low-cost DC-DC conversion.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—  January, 2022 — EPC announces the availability of the EPC9166, a 500 W DC-DC demo board that converts a 12 V input to 48 V output. The EPC9166 demo board demonstrates the Renesas ISL81807 80 V two-phase synchronous boost controller with the latest generation EPC2218 eGaN FETs from EPC to achieve greater than 96.5% efficiency in a 12 V input to 48 V regulated output conversion with 500 kHz switching frequency.  The output voltage can be configured to 36 V, 48 V, and 60 V. The board can deliver 480 W power without a heatsink.
