EPC9170 KIT – Evaluation Board

EPC9170KIT – 2 kW 48 V/14 V Bi-directional
Power Module Evaluation Board

EPC9170 Development Kit

The EPC9170 evaluation power module is designed for 48 V to 14 V DC-DC applications and operates at high efficiency in a very small footprint. The board features the EPC23101 and EPC2302 ePower™ chipset and is controlled by a module (EPC9528) that includes the Microchip dsPIC33CK256MP503 16-bit digital controller.

The fast-switching speed and low losses of the eGaN® FETs allow the converter to operate at 500 kHz which significantly reduces the size of the solution.

The EPC9170KIT includes:

One (1) EPC9170 evaluation board
One (1) EPC9528 controller board
