On Board Charger (OBC) LLC Converter

Nowadays, so called plug in hybrid as well as fully electric vehicles are catching more and more attraction triggered by the reduction of pollution as it is normally happening with pure combustion engine.

SiC MOSFETs: Gate Drive Optimization

For high−voltage switching power applications, silicon carbide or SiC MOSFETs bring notable advantages compared to traditional silicon MOSFETs and IGBTs.

FAD3151MXA, FAD3171MXA Gate Driver Application Note

The FAD3151MXA and FAD3171MXA are single channel floating automotive gate drivers suitable for driving high−speed power MOSFETs up to 110 V. Designed in a SOI technology, the drivers are ideal for applications that require noise immunity against severe negative transients and ground offset up to −80 V.

Introduction to onsemi High Current Dual Half Bridge Modules for Automotive Mild Hybrid Applications

onsemi has introduced a series of isolated 80 V MOSFET modules in a variety of packages that are suitable for 48 V battery−driven mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV) and low voltage traction systems.

General Isolation and Gate Drivers Overview

Gate drivers technologies have had certain evolutions during the last decade. With the arrival of on-chip integrated isolation technologies, isolated driver ICs have been developed by main driver IC manufacturers. These digital isolators are replacing the OPTO-coupler technology little by little.
