Audio Eval Board Enlists GaN Power Transistors

GaN Systems’ Evaluation Board employs what it calls the world’s fastest combination of GaN power transistors and power drivers. Combining best-in-class GaN transistors with the fastest commercially available GaN transistor driver on the GS61004B evaluation board, the GS61004B-EVBDC evaluation platform is now available with the latest in high-speed GaN E-HEMT drivers from Peregrine Semiconductor.

 

The evaluation kit (GS61004B-EVBDC) combines GaN Systems’ GS61004B power transistors with the fastest GaN transistor driver available – the PE29102 - from Peregrine Semiconductor. This combination on the GS61004B-EVBDC evaluation platform provides power design engineers with desirable features that include:

SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

 

  • Four GS61004B GaN transistors and two PE29102 E-HEMT drivers
  • GaN transistors operable up to 100 MHz
  • Transistor driver operable up to 40MHz
  • Best-in-class propagation delay
  • Optimized, Vcc independent, for matched dead time
  • Integrated dead-time control, resistor-adjustable

 

The GS61004B GaN E-HEMTs used in conjunction with the PE29102 high-speed GaN E-HEMT Driver, generate low dead times to minimize crossover distortion in class-D applications. The PE29102’s unique set of phase-control pins enable the same part to be used for both phases in bridge-tied load (BTL) configurations—a technique used in audio amplifiers.

 

The evaluation platform includes a GaN E-HEMT Driver GS61004B Full-Bridge evaluation board assembly and detailed User’s Guide. The GS61004B-EVBCD is priced at $99 each. GaN Systems Inc. Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. 613-686-1996 and [email protected]
