LMG3410-HB-EVM: do we have power consumption data for this EVM?

Part Number: LMG3410-HB-EVM

Hi,

Customer use our EVM for testing, and they use voltage source to provide HVBUS voltage, but they see when without load, the HVBUS=400V, current through HVBUS is 35mA, it looks big.

Do we have power consumption data for this EVM?

Best regards,

  • Hello Yuan. Can you give me some more information?

    1. Does the EVM also have the GaN daughter card populated?

    2. Are they only applying the 400V HVBUS or are they also powering the EVM with 12V?

    Regards,

    Tobin

    1) we only have the GaN daughter card ,and have maken a test board。

    2)we apply the 400V HVBUS and  also power the card  with 5V

    Some more questions:

    1. Is the device switching, but no load?

    2. If it is switching, what is the frequency?

      1) switch;

       2)

         2.1 no load 

         2.2  load  : 1K

         2.3 load  :  5K

    2. If it is switching, what is the frequency?

    fre:200kHz

    Hello,

    The 35mA with 400V does seem to be a lot since it will be 14W on the FETs. 

    Here are some questions and steps to take:

    1. You mentioned in your notes the device is heating up with open output. Is the device getting hotter when it's loaded or it went back to normal?

    2. Could you try to lower the switching frequency to say 100kHz and see if the current is halved?

    3. Could you try to lower the bus voltage and see if the current is scaled down?

          keep hot。

    2. Could you try to lower the switching frequency to say 100kHz and see if the current is halved?

          i rember low switching frequency, the current is halved。 i confirm again today。

    3. Could you try to lower the bus voltage and see if the current is scaled down?

         yes。

    Are you able to capture switch node waveform? Also what's the dead time setting?
