EPC’s EPC21601ENGRT 40 V, 10 A, 3.3 V logic, eToF laser driver IC is capable of very high frequencies exceeding 100 MHz and super short pulses <2 ns to modulate laser driving currents up to 10 A. The turn-on and turn-off times on the EPC21601 driver are 410 ps and 320 ps, respectively. This single-chip driver plus eGaN® FET uses EPC’s proprietary GaN IC technology in a chip-scale BGA form factor that measures only 1.5 mm x 1.0 mm. With this small form factor and the integration of several functions, the overall solution is 36% smaller on the printed circuit board (PCB) than an equivalent multi-chip discrete implementation.
The EPC21601 has high performance and a small solution size for time-of-flight (ToF) LIDAR applications, including robotics, drones, 3D sensing, and autonomous cars.
