Evaluation of 1200 V, 300 A, SiC MOSFET Switching Performance

2021-01-21T15:03:35-06:00January 21st, 2021|Categories: Article, Featured|

The use of SiC MOSFETs has been increased in modern industrial applications due to fast switching, conduction loss, and an increase in breakdown voltage. With the ease of most rapid switching speeds and higher-frequency empowerment, the framework reduces the size and increases system efficiency. High-power SIC MOSFET modules are the acceptable substitution of Si IGBTs

Gaining the GaN advantage is easier than ever

2020 is the year of the GaN charger and the announcement we made today about the Philips multi-port 65W GaN fast charging device validates that point. This 65W charger is the next generation of Philips’ 2C1A 18W product and shows big improvements from the previous version. It’s compact and offers higher power and faster charging

Reducing Size, Noise, and Field Failures of Transportation APUs

2020-12-21T15:44:42-06:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Article, Featured, Microchip|

Designers are finally able to extract disruptive system-level benefits of SiC technology to shrink the size, noise, and field failures of auxiliary power units (APUs) in transportation vehicles. As vehicle electrification proliferates the consumer EV segment other forms of transportation are also chasing the global macrotrend, including railway, aircraft, delivery trucks, off-highway vehicles,

SiC, GaN: Mind the Bandgap

2020-12-15T16:10:25-06:00December 15th, 2020|Categories: Article, Featured|

In recent years, wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductors such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) have been receiving considerable attention. Both these compounds can sustain higher frequencies, higher voltages, and more complex electronics products than silicon. The adoption of SiC and GaN power devices is now undeniable, and questions are more related to the breadth

Evaluate GaN Power Modules with Easy-to-Use Kit

GaN modules meet industry-standard footprints with superior system performance. If you’re looking to investigate the benefits of GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, you’re in luck: GaN Systems has debuted four new integrated power-module evaluation kits. The module kits are designed to be easy to use for evaluating performance in high-power applications such as traction

Article: Peak Current of Isolated Gate Drivers

2020-12-08T10:24:06-06:00December 8th, 2020|Categories: Analog Devices, Article, Featured|

One of the key metrics when choosing a gate driver is peak current. During the process of examining various competitor datasheets, make sure peak current is compared in a like-for-like manner. One question often comes up when considering what gate driver to use for an application: What is the peak current that a driver

Test and Qualification Help Ensure the Reliability of GaN
