AgileSwitch® Digital Programmable Gate Drivers for Silicon Carbide

Traditional gate drivers fail to provide precise control of gate turn-on and turn-off, and, for SiC, rapid and robust short circuit protection. High di/Dt and dv/Dt in SiC devices lead to false faults, ringing, high EMI and voltage overshoot. Driving, protecting and optimizing the efficiency of the SiC MOSFET requires the type of control only possible by software based digital solutions. This webinar will demonstrate a new technique for driving SiC devices and capturing the full potential of SiC.
