EPC announced the availability of the EPC9144, a 15 V, 28 A high-current pulsed laser-diode driver demonstration board. The rapid transition capability of the AEC Q101-qualified EPC2216 provides power pulses to drive laser diodes, VCSELs or LEDs at up to ten times faster than an equivalent MOSFET.
The EPC9144 ships with an interposer board, a collection of break-away 5 mm x 5 mm square interposer PCBs with footprints to accommodate different lasers, RF connectors, and a collection of other footprints designed for experimentation with different loads. The use of the interposers allows many different lasers or other loads to be mounted, allowing users to test the performance with the load requirements that are appropriate to their application.
The EPC9144 demonstration board is priced $378.00 each. The EPC2216 eGaN FET used on the EPC9144 demonstration board is priced at 2.5Ku/reel at $0.532 each.
