This light distancing and ranging (LiDAR) reference design showcases the LMG1020 and LMG1025-Q1 low side gate drivers for narrow pulse applications. These devices are capable of driving a FET to produce <1.5-ns laser optical pulses in excess of 100W.
- Circuit capable of delivering 60A 1ns current pulses
- Flexible platform to install and test laser diodes
- Latest GaN FET driver technology LMG1020 and LMG1025-Q1
- Advanced minimal-inductance layout
