Original Press Release:
Richardson RFPD Introduces GaN Systems’ New Full-bridge Evaluation Board, Optimized for High-frequency Switching and Class D Amplifiers
Collaboration between GaN Systems and Peregrine offers designers opportunity for significantly better performance in a smaller package
Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for a new evaluation board from GaN Systems Inc. and Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation.
The GS61004B-EVBCD evaluation board combines GaN Systemsâ€™ GaN E-HEMT with the ultrafast PE29102 gate driver from Peregrine.
Using this evaluation platform, designers can characterize the performance advantages that result from operating a Class D amplifier at a high switching frequency. Low dead time and subnanosecond turn-on/off yield a higher-efficiency design with less total harmonic distortion and EMI.
Additional key features of the GS61004B-EVBCD include:
- Full-bridge with four GaN E-HEMTs and two E-HEMT drivers
- GS61004B E-HEMT operable up to 100 MHz
- PE29102 E-HEMT driver operable up to 40 MHz
- Best-in-class propagation delay: 10â€“45 ns, depending on configuration
- Optimized, Vcc independent, for matched dead time
- Integrated, resistor-adjustable dead-time control
- Control pins to evaluate phasing of each half-bridge circuit
- Snubbers from each switch node to ground
