High Frequency Class-E Power Amplifier

Overview

TopologyPush-Pull Converter symmetrical isolated
Input voltage7-12 V
Switching frequency15000 kHz
Output 11 A

Description

The EPC9051 is a high efficiency, differential mode class-E amplifierdevelopment board that can operate up to 15 MHz. Higher frequencyoperation may be possible but is currently under evaluation. The purposeof this development board is to simplify the evaluation process of class-Eamplifier technology using eGaN® FETs by allowing engineers to easilymount all the critical class-E components on a single board that can beeasily connected into an existing system.This board may also be used for applications where a low side switch isutilized. Examples include, and are not limited to, push-pull converters,current-mode Class D amplifiers, common source bi-directional switch,and generic high voltage narrow pulse width applications such as LiDAR.The amplifier board features the 100 V rated EPC2037 eGaN FET. Theamplifier is set to operate in differential mode and can be re-configuredto operate in single-ended mode. The key feature of this developmentboard is that it does not require a gate driver for the eGaN FETs and isdriven directly from logic gates. A separate logic supply regulator hasalso been provided on the board.For more information on the EPC2037 eGaN FETs please refer to thedatasheet available from EPC at www.epc-co.com. The datasheet shouldbe read in conjunction with this quick start guide.
