This whitepaper shares some design guidelines and advice on how to reduce failure causes and simplify the design - with application examples

Building an Automotive On-Board Charger

2022-06-20T17:40:35-05:00June 20th, 2022|Categories: Article, Featured, Microchip, White Paper|

Microchip Technical Article On-board chargers (OBCs) are just one piece of the EV puzzle. Traditional combustion vehicles are seeing electronic upgrades across the board, including motors, sound, sensors, braking, compressors, and charging/battery management. In fact, most non-EV cars today have as many as 40 motors, some more than 100 depending on luxury class. As

Motor Control in e-Mobility Applications

2022-04-17T13:38:08-05:00April 17th, 2022|Categories: Article, Featured, Microchip, White Paper|

Microchip Technical Article E-mobility covers a very wide range of human transportation applications — not just traction motors and EVs but also e-bikes, e-scooters and other recreational equipment. Additionally, EVs have very complex electrical systems when compared with normal cars, with two or even three different electrical busses (12V/48V/high voltage). This white paper reviews Microchip's

White Paper: Deciphering Data Sheets

2021-10-16T16:30:26-05:00October 16th, 2021|Categories: Featured, Richardson RFPD, White Paper, Wolfspeed|

from Wolfspeed During the component selection process of hardware design, it’s typical to quickly review datasheets and user guides before committing to a specific chipset. However, depending on the application, it may benefit the designer to explore some of these features in greater detail; unfortunately, it isn’t always straightforward. Download this white paper and

White Paper: See, Feel, and Hear the Difference with GaN Class-D Amplifier and Companion SMPS

2021-10-06T12:05:58-05:00October 6th, 2021|Categories: Featured, GaN Systems, White Paper|

from GaN Systems As engineers within the design community read and learn about new products and topologies, they become sceptical about the promises for improved operating characteristics. The promise of a step-function improvement with GaN in audio systems could be classified as one of these scenarios. However, with the GaN Systems Stereo Class-D Amplifier system
