Market Focus: Isolated Gate Driver for Power Supply Applications
Isolated switched mode power supplies (SMPS) and inverters are ubiquitous across various applications due to their high efficiency and flexible design considerations. They help power telecom base stations, server and data centers, industrial factory automation, and motor control. This webinar will focus on the isolated gate driver as a key component of this system, and how it plays a role to improve the performance and efficiency of power supplies.
Technical Focus: IsoDriver Bootstrap Design and Power Supply Topology
This training session will provide an end applications overview of SMPS detailing common apps and their power needs. Additionally, we discuss how the end applications determine the design and topology of SMPS. The session will highlight some of the commonly used topologies, merits, and challenges. Finally, as an example, we will review design considerations for the bootstrap supply as used in dual driver configurations.
