Original Press Release

Richardson RFPD Introduces GaN Systems’ New Full-bridge Evaluation Board, Optimized for High-frequency Switching and Class D Amplifiers

Press release date: Dec 13, 2017

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 Systems’ 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: 10–45 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
