Using the ADuM4136 Isolated Gate Driver and LT3999 DC-to-DC Converter to Drive a 1200 V SiC Power Module

2022-02-21T10:43:16-06:00

This application note demonstrates the advantages of the ADuM4136 gate driver, a single-channel device with an output drive capability of up to 4 A, a maximum common-mode transient immunity (CMTI) of 150 kV/μs, and fast fault management that includes desaturation protection.

Application Note: Characterization of a 62mm SiC Power Module with AgileSwitch Augmented Switching Gate Drivers

2021-02-08T12:04:38-06:00

Switching a SiC MOSFET Power Module creates two significant problems that need to be addressed in order to optimize the performance of the device: turn-off voltage overshoot and ringing. These two parasitic problems need to be controlled while maintaining efficient switching. Microchip’s AgileSwitch® line of patented Gate Drive products address these problems...

Application Note: Reducing Size, Noise, and Field Failures of Transportation APUs

2021-02-08T12:05:02-06:00

As vehicle electrification proliferates the consumer EV segment, other forms of transportation are also chasing the global macrotrend. Today, 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.
