Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems are widely used to safeguard power supply for critical components in various applications ranging from telecommunications and data centers to various industrial facilities. These systems ensure reliable voltage supply by providing a filter function and compensating for short-term power outages from the grid.

There are typically two main configurations for UPS systems, offline and online. Offline systems are connected in parallel to the main supply line and provide support to the mainline. Online systems sit on the main supply line, standard in high power or more demanding applications, and offer better performance and power quality.

The long-term expertise of onsemi and our leading role in power management and conversion help customers across the globe develop UPS systems at the cutting edge of technology that maximizes power quality and reliability to the loads while reducing the cost of ownership. Our Silicon Carbide (SiC), SiC/Si hybrid, and IGBT module technology, as well as our broad offering of advanced discrete SiC MOSFETs, IGBTs, and mid-voltage SJ MOSFETs, together with versatile gate driver, power conversion, sensing, and protection ICs families help address the diverse requirements of low, medium, and high power uninterruptible power supply (UPS) designs.
