Product Overview

The GS61008P 100V GaN Synchronous Buck Evaluation Board is a platform for analyzing the GS61008P enhancement mode GaN-on-silicon power transistor from GaN Systems. The evaluation board (EVB) can be used to step down voltage and measure specific voltage waveforms to gain a better understanding of the GS61008P transistor. The EVB requires logic power of 12V and has a BNC connector for the drive signal, and has adjustable dead time to improve efficiency at the targeted operating point.

Advantages of Gallium Nitride

Gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor technology allows for higher switching frequency power electronics designs as compared to MOSFETs and IGBTs. This is due to no reverse recovery charge storage, very low gate charge, low body capacitance, and low inductance packaging. Higher switching frequencies allow for the use of smaller inductors and capacitors which improve power density while also creating less heat due to component losses. The technology can greatly improve the efficiency and reduce the size of high power applications.
