The EPC9146 power board from Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) contains three independently controlled half-bridge circuits, featuring the EPC2152 monolithic ePower Stage with integrated gate driver, 80-V maximum device voltage, and 15-A maximum output current. The board also can be configured for multi-phase dc-dc conversion. The EPC2152 supports PWM switching frequencies up to 3 MHz are supported.
The EPC9146 contains critical functions for power-drive application, including monolithic power stage with integrated gate driver; regulated auxiliary power rails for housekeeping supplies, voltage, and temperature sense; accurate current sense; protection functions; and so on. Paired together with EPC9147A, it allows the user to control this power board directly through the Microchip dsPIC33EP256MC506 microcontroller board leveraging existing resources for quick development purposes.
