EPC launches eToF laser driver IC family for LiDAR

Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA – which makes enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN) power field-effect transistors (FETs) and integrated circuits for power management applications – has introduced the first of a new family of gallium nitride (GaN) laser driver integrated circuits (ICs) offering higher performance and smaller solution size for time-of-flight (ToF) light detection & ranging (LiDAR) applications including robotics, surveillance systems, drones, 3D sensing, autonomous cars and and vacuum cleaners. The laser driver integrates a 40V, 10A FET with integrated gate driver and 3.3 logic level input in a single chip…
