Power Switching Device Cannot Drive Themselves - Mastering the Art of High Voltage Gate Driver Design in UPS, Telecom, and Servers

We live in a world where designers are constantly pursuing higher efficiencies and higher power densities. Our customers want more power out with less power loss, while achieving smaller solution sizes! They strive to reduce switching losses while maintaining signal integrity. The need for higher efficiency and power density is a trend seen across isolated and non-isolated power systems in Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), Telecom Rectifiers, and Server PSUs.

Get to know your gate driver

Know Your Gate Driver

We live in a world where design engineers are on a seemingly constant pursuit for higher efficiency. Everyone wants to do more with less power. Higher system efficiency is a team effort that includes (but is not limited to) better-performing gate drivers, controllers and new wide-bandgap technologies. In this multi-part video series, we will focus on the gate drivers and how choosing the right driver can help your whole system design. You will learn about important gate driver specs, why they’re important, and how they can influence the systems around them.
