eGaN® FET Family Adds 100 V, 16 milliohm Power Transistor

The EPC2016 is Efficient Power Conversion's newest enhancement mode gallium nitride power transistor. The EPC2016 is a 3.36 mm2, 100 VDS, 11 A device with a maximum RDS(on) of 16 milliohms with 5 V applied to the gate.  This GaN power transistor delivers high performance due to its ultra high switching frequency, extremely low RDS(on), exceptionally low QG and in a very small package.

Compared to a state-of-the-art silicon power MOSFET with similar on-resistance, the EPC2016 is much smaller and has many times superior switching performance. Applications that benefit from eGaN FET performance include high-speed DC-DC power supplies, point-of-load converters, class D audio amplifiers, and high frequency circuits.

Additionally, the EPC9010 development board, featuring the EPC2016 devices and the LM5113 gate driver IC in a half bridge configuration, is available now. Development boards support designers in evaluating and incorporating eGaN FETs into their power conversion systems.

In 1k piece quantities, the EPC2016 is priced at $1.61 and is immediately available through Digi-Key Corporation
