Neuste AppNotes

Voller Tisch mit Fokus auf Übertrager

This reference design presents an auxiliary power supply providing a unipolar output voltage adjustable between 15 V and 20 V with a maximum output power of 6 W. The optimized design is for driving high-voltage SiC-MOSFET and IGBT discrete devices as well as power modules in high power converters. The output voltage range covers the requiremens of different devices, and the design can be easiliy integrated in the gate driver system. In addition to the compact size and high efficiency, one of the main features of the design is the extremely low interwinding capacitance of the WE-AGDT 750318114 transformer down to 6.8 pF, which helps to achieve high CMTI rating (Common-Mode Transient Immunity). A high CMTI enables faster switching transitions without compromising the functionality of the system, helping to achieve smaller system size and higher efficiency of the high power converter, as demanded by trending applications in areas like e-mobility, renewable energy and industrial automation.
