A 175-to-350 V hard-switched boost converter was constructed using a high-voltage GaN high-electron-mobility transistor grown on SiC substrate. The high speed and low on-resistance of the wide-band-gap device enabled extremely fast switching transients and low losses, resulting in a high conversion efficiency of 97.8% with 300-W output power at 1 MHz. The maximum efficiency was 98.0% at 214-W output power, well exceeding the state of the art of Si-based converters at similar frequencies.
