Passive components for Silcon Carbide and Gallium Nitride applications
Learn how high performance passive components are key to SiC and GaN applications
Wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors using SiC and GaN materials offer the promise of greater power efficiency and smaller sized power circuits. These innovative new technologies operate at higher voltages, frequencies and temperatures, presenting new challenges for capacitors and magnetic components.
Avnet Abacus presented on high performance passive components for operating SiC and GaN applications at EBV's virtual power fair. You can now watch the session on demand, or you can download the presentation below.
This presentation details the requirements for passive components in these applications, such as higher current ratings, operating temperatures and dv/dt, and explain the innovative solutions passive component manufacturers are bringing to engineers to enable high efficiency power designs.
Presented by our passive specialist, André Springer, you will learn about:
- Key parameters, considerations and specifications for selecting passive components for wide band gap (WBG) applications
- Selecting capacitor and magnetic components in WBG applications for optimal efficiency, performance, size and cost
- Innovations from world leading passive component manufacturers to enable next-generation power electronics designs
