Whitepaper Overview

As the demand for smaller, faster, cheaper microelectronics pushes devices to operate at higher performance levels, thermal management has become a critical requirement for power. As the demand for smaller, faster, cheaper microelectronics pushes devices to operate at higher performance levels, thermal management has become a critical requirement for power electronics, including power supplies, inverters, fast chargers, and motor control.

In this whitepaper from Wolfspeed, learn how a 6.6-kW bidirectional on-board electric vehicle charger reference design demonstrates the suitability of the proposed thermal management solution. Through experimentation, the authors examine two thermal management solutions — thermal vias and embedded aluminum nitride (AlN) — and give recommendations on when to use particular solutions.
