Unleashing SiC MOSFETs to Extract their Maximum Performance in Power Converter Designs

Dynamic characterization platform

Silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs switch up to five to ten times faster than silicon (Si) IGBTs and can operate at higher junction temperatures. Because they can switch on and off so quickly, they enable higher switching frequencies and therefore allow those designing inverters and other power converters to shrink

Avoiding Voltage Rail Blind Spots

LTC3886 Schematic Converting 48VIN to 5V/15A & 12V/15A

Knowing the condition and operating status of a voltage regulator is perhaps the last remaining blind spots in today’s modern electronic systems since they do not normally have the means for directly configuring or remotely monitoring key operating parameters. It’s usually critical for reliable operation
