Event Description

Every Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET requires the right gate driver to truly maximize system efficiencies and reduce power losses.

This webinar provides guidance for pairing gate drivers to Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETS for applications including uninterruptible power supply (UPS), energy storage systems and solar and electric vehicle (EV) charging. We will explore how to reduce conduction and power losses to maximize efficiency of voltage and current flow during SiC turn on/off and will also discuss the relationship between gate drive current (iG) and the SiC MOSFET gate to source voltage (VGS) and the total gate charge (Qg).

Key Takeaways:
- In-depth design considerations and guidance for pairing gate drivers to SiC MOSFETS
- Techniques to optimize efficiency by reducing conduction and power losses
