Description

The EPC9114 wireless power demonstration system is a high efficiency, A4WP compatible, Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS), Voltage Mode class-D wireless power transfer demonstration kit capable of delivering up to 10 W into a DC load while operating at 6.78 MHz (Lowest ISM band). The purpose of this demonstration system is to simplify the evaluation process of wireless power technology using eGaN® FETs. The EPC9114 wireless power system comprises the three boards (shown in Figure 1) namely: 1) A Source Board (Transmitter or Power Amplifier) EPC9510 2) A Class 2 A4WP compliant Source Coil (Transmit Coil) 3) A Category 3 A4WP compliant Device Coil with rectifier and DC smoothing capacitor. The amplifier board features the enhancement-mode half-bridge field effect transistor (FET), the 100 V rated EPC2107 eGaN FET with integrated synchronous bootstrap FET. The amplifier is configured for single ended operation and includes the gate driver/s, oscillator, and feedback controller for the pre-regulator that ensures operation for wireless power control based on the A4WP standard. This allows for testing compliant to the A4WP class 2 standard over the entire load range of ±35j Ω. The pre-regulator features the 100 V rated 65 mΩ EPC2036 as the main switching device for a SEPIC converter.The amplifier is equipped with a pre-regulator controller that adjusts the voltage supplied to the ZVS class D amplifier based on the limits of 3 parameters; coil current, DC power delivered and maximum voltage. The coil current has the lowest priority followed by the power delivered with the amplifier supply voltage having the highest priority. Changes in the device load power demand, physical placement of the device on the source coil and other factors such as metal objects in proximity to the source coil all contribute to variations in coil current, DC power and amplifier voltage requirements. Under any conditions, the controller will ensure the correct operating conditions for the ZVS class D amplifier based on the A4WP standard. The pre-regulator can be bypassed to allow testing with custom control hardware. The board further allows easy access to critical measurement nodes that allow accurate power measurement instrumentation hookup. A simplified diagram of the amplifier board is given in Figure 2.The Source and Device Coils are Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) compliant and have been pre-tuned to operate at 6.78 MHz with the EPC9510 amplifier. The source coil is Class 2 and the device coil is Category 3 compliant. The device board includes a high frequency schottky diode based full bridge rectifier and output filter to deliver a filtered unregulated DC voltage. The device board comes equipped with two LED’s, one green to indicate the power is being received with an output voltage equal or greater than 4 V and a second red LED that indicates that the output voltage has reached the maximum and is above 37 V.For more information on the EPC2107 and EPC2036 eGaN FETs please refer to the datasheet available from EPC at www.epc-co.com. The datasheet should be read in conjunction with this quick start guide.
