Market Focus: IsoDrivers in High Power Inverter Systems
High power inverters often push the limits of current and working voltage. When designing for these extreme working conditions, special considerations must be taken to prevent damage to the switching devices and to ensure reliable operation. In this session, we will highlight the features to look for when selecting an isolated gate driver and how they can help mitigate these design challenges.
Technical Focus: Understanding Layout Recommendations for Isolated Gate Driver Circuits
Modern isolated gate drivers are highly integrated. This drastically reduces the number of external components and simplifies layout and design. However, despite these benefits, some practical layout considerations are important to ensure the optimal EMI performance, long-lasting reliability, and compliance with safety regulations. This session will cover important layout consideration you should consider when designing with isolated gate drivers.
