IMS Evaluation Platform features low thermal resistance.

Press Release Summary:

Insulated Metal Substrate Evaluation Platform consists of GSP65MB-EVB motherboard and two IMS evaluation modules. The motherboard is available in two power levels 3 kW (GSP65R25HB-EVB) and the 6 kW (GSP65R13HB-EVB) whereas the evaluation modules can be configured as half-bridge or a full-bridge on motherboard. Module comes with GaN E-HEMTs, gate drivers, isolated DC/DC supply and decoupling capacitors and GaNPX packaging technology.

Original Press Release:

Richardson RFPD Introduces New High-Power Insulated Metal Substrate Evaluation Platform from GAN Systems

Provides flexible development platform for high-efficiency power systems with 3 kW or higher applications

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for a new insulated metal substrate (IMS) evaluation platform from GaN Systems Inc.

The platform consists of a motherboard (GSP65MB-EVB) and two IMS evaluation modules. The modules can be configured as a half-bridge (single IMS module) or a full-bridge (two IMS modules) on the high-power motherboard. The IMS evaluation modules are available in two power levels, the 3 kW GSP65R25HB-EVB and the 6 kW GSP65R13HB-EVB. The modules include GaN E-HEMTs, gate drivers, an isolated DC/DC supply, DC bus decoupling capacitors, and a heatsink to form a fully-functional, half-bridge power stage.

The new platform provides a flexible, low-cost, high-power development platform for high-efficiency power systems with 3 kW or higher applications. In combination with GaNPX packaging technology and smart design techniques, it enables power engineers to quickly take full advantage of GaN power transistors in designing smaller, lighter, lower cost, and more efficient power systems for data center, automotive, and energy storage system applications.

Additional key features of the new IMS evaluation platform include:

  • Low thermal resistance and optimized layout
  • Modules can be used independently as a high-power GaN intelligent power module with developers’ own system boards for in-system prototyping
  • Greater power density
