TI's battery experts have decades of experience. Our battery scientists bring cutting-edge solutions for new battery chemistries & technologies, from charging, gauging, monitoring, protection and more. This technical training was especially developed for design engineers working with power supply for battery-powered systems. Additional resources and design tools are provided for each training to complete your training experience.
The first section will discuss the applications where the different kinds of gate driver will be used, and we will also identify the gate drivers location used in each typical system architecture.
Gate driver design deep dive outline:
-Parasitics in gate driver-Gate driver soft/hard switching difference-Strong gate driver and MOSFET nonlinear COSS-Common mode transient immunity(CMTI), dV/dt and di/dt through parasitics L, and C?-How to separate power ground noise by PCB layout?-Power supply for isolated gate driver in UPS, server and Telecom system-TIDA and Experimental waveforms
This training video discusses the strong gate driver introduced high dv/dt and di/dt during turn-on and turn-off switching transition, and also illustrate the high dv/dt and di/dt introduced noise through the parasitic capacitance/inductance on high side level-shift and junction capacitance on the bootstrap diode. Solutions with new state-of-the-art gate driver and its key features are introduced and explained.
This training video discusses the gate driver select considerations and key specifications, and also introduces the novel gate driver specs for high end gate driver.
This training video will be introducing Popular Power Semiconductors - Si-MOSFETs, IGBTs, SiC-MOSFETs and GaN, and identify the differences among this devices in the perspective the gate driver design and select consideration.
