EPC9145KIT Demonstration Board

EPC's EPC9145KIT 1 kW motor drive demonstration is powered by AEC-Qualified eGaN® FETs

Image of EPC's EPC9145KIT Demonstration BoardEPC's EPC9145KIT demonstration board is a 3-phase BLDC motor drive inverter board featuring the 2.2 mΩ maximum RDS(on), 80 V maximum device voltage EPC2206 eGaN FET. This board is tailored to ebikes, eMotion, drones, and robot motor applications. With 48 VBUS voltage, it can deliver 15 ARMS steady state at +50°C temperature rise in natural air convection and reach 20 ARMS (28 APEAK) with a heatsink attached. The EPC9145 has been tested up to 100 kHz, 60 V input, and 50 APEAK.

The GaN-based inverter enhances the performance of the motor for range, precision, and torque and eliminates the electrolytic capacitors for lower overall system cost and higher reliability. The extremely small size allows integration into the motor housing for the lowest EMI, highest density, and lowest weight.

The EPC9145KIT includes the EPC9147C microcontroller mating board that accepts STMicroelectronics' STM32 NUCLEO-G431RB motor drive development board and is fitted with the STM32G431RBT6 ARM digital controller. The EPC9145 inverter board will also accept the EPC9147A microcontroller mating board featuring Microchip’s dsPIC33EP-MC digital signal controller.

Applications

  • Three-phase motor drives: robotics, drones, and e-mobility
