1.5 Top gate driver pitfalls and how to address them
This presentation discusses common mistakes associated with gate drive circuits from a gate driver point of view. Watch this 2-part video series to learn a number of mistakes found in the component selection of the gate driver IC power supply. With an engaging, interactive format, this presentation covers problems that occur when the bias supply and bootstrap supply components are not correctly selected. It also covers the effects of high dv/dt noise and the negative effects of parasitics components in the circuit and proper layout considerations. For each problem, this presentation shows the problems, then discusses the causes and consequences before offering a solution on how to prevent the issue.
