These new generation eGaN FETs address the new needs of the e-mobility, delivery and logistics robot, and drone markets for compact BLDC motor drives.
Efficient Power Conversion Corp. (EPC) has expanded its lineup of eGaN FET portfolio with the release of the EPC2065 and EPC2054.
The EPC2065 is an 80V, 3.6mΩ, 221Apulsed eGaN FET in a 7.1mm2 chip-scale package. The small size and superior efficiency reduce overall power system size and weight, making the device ideal for 32V-48V BLDC motor drive applications for e-mobility, e-bike and e-scooters, service, delivery, logistic robots, and drones.
In these applications the driver is integrated with the motor and miniaturization is a key factor. The ability to operate with significantly shorter dead times results in less noise and less EMI. The device is capable of high frequency operation to achieve the highest density for high frequency DC-DC converters for computing and industrial applications and for synchronous rectification.
Meanwhile, the EPC2054 is a 200V, 3.6mΩ, eGaN FET in a tiny 1.69mm2 chip-scale package. The device can deliver 32A pulsed current in an extremely small size, with very fast on-off transition times and super small capacitance and inductances, that make it ideal for industrial Lidar/ToF applications.
The low resistance, low switching losses, no reverse recovery charge, fast switching, high frequency capability, and the tiny footprint make the EPC2054 a cost-effective and high-density solution for a wide range of applications including, but not limited to, high frequency DC-DC, synchronous rectification, wireless power, class-D audio, Automation, Solar and Optical.
“With the clear superiority of these new eGaN FETs, power system designers can take advantage of devices that are higher performing, smaller, more thermally efficient, and at a comparable cost. The displacement of the power MOSFET with GaN devices continues to accelerate,” said Alex Lidow, EPC’s co-founder and CEO.
