EPC aims high with 300V space-grade GaN power transistor

Posted Date: 2023-08-31

There are two units, one rated at 200V and the opposite at 300V:

  • EPC7020G  – 200V, 14.5mΩ, 80A (pictured)
  • EPC7030G – 300V, 32mΩ, 50A

“Functions together with energy provides for satellites and area mission gear, motor drives for robotics, instrumentation, response wheels and deep area probes,” mentioned EPC.

Taking the 300V model for instance, max on-resistance is 32mΩ and typical gate cost is 15nC (with 4nC to the drain). Reverse restoration cost, as each GaN machine producer likes to level out, is 0nC.

Steady max drain present is 50A (at 5Vgs) and pulses as much as 200A might be withstood (25˚C, 300µs).

Gate-to-source limits are -4 and +6V. Operation is over -55 to +150°C.

Electrical traits can be found with radiation as much as 1,000krads, and single-event LET is 50MeV/mg/cm2 for xenon and 83.7 for gold.

The bundle for each units, referred to as ‘G’, is airtight and measures 8 x 5.6mm.

“The G-package household gives the bottom on-resistance of any packaged rad laborious transistor presently available on the market,” claimed firm CEO Bel Lazar.

These units be part of two earlier lower-voltage space-grade EPC elements:

Half Drain to supply
Drain to supply
Drain max
EPC7019G 40V 4mΩ 530A
EPC7018G 100V 6mΩ 345A
EPC7020G 200V 14.5mΩ 200A
EPC7030G 300V 32mΩ 200A
