White paper: Peak power load management in DC/DC converters

In modern computing systems, loads are often dynamically changing with high peak to average ratios. To reduce unnecessary costs and to save space, DC/DC converters can be specified with limited peak power ratings to cover these conditions. To avoid stress, DC/DCs must have secure over-temperature immunity.

Powering gate drives efficiently

Semiconductor switch technology promotions are a maze of claims for best efficiency and cost-effectiveness. There is a place for them all, from the humble IGBT through silicon- and silicon-carbide MOSFETs to GaN HEMT cells. Depending on your development schedule, application and budget, each technology can give excellent results. This includes the gate drive which is critical for best performance, both in losses and reliability for all the device types.
