The superior switching capability of silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs, combined with the specific electrical characteristics of these power devices and parasitic elements, requires special attention on the gate drive circuit and layout design to avoid ringing and overshoot from becoming an issue.

Autonomous drones and robots utilize small motors. These fast-spinning mini motors require miniature encoders and IC package sizes. This article shows how an optical sinusoidal encoder provides a higher resolution and increased speeds with a 2x3 mm dual simultaneous-sampling SAR-ADC.
