Boost your power conversion with eGaN FETs

August 26, 2016 // By Julien Happich
This month, Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) is giving away five EPC9107 demonstration boards, worth USD 207 each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

With a 9V-28V input and capable of delivering up to 15A at 3.3V, this board is a fully functional 1MHz buck power conversion demonstration circuit. It uses the EPC2015 eGaN FET in conjunction with the LM5113 100V half-bridge gate driver from Texas Instruments. The EPC9107 is 3” square and contains a fully closed-loop buck converter with optimized control loop. The complete power stage including eGaN FETs, driver, inductor and input/output caps is in an ultra-compact 0.5”x0.5” layout. Despite its small size, the board has peak power efficiency greater than 96%.

And last month’s winners are…

In our previous reader offer, CUI Inc. was giving away five NDM2Z-50HT-DEMO-D kits , worth $405 each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

Lucky winners include Mr. U. Huber from Germany, Mr G. Visschers from the Netherlands, Mr T. Junker from Switzerland, Mr J. Borriboon from Denmark and R. Stepaniuk from Spain. All should be receiving their packages soon. Let's wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
