This training features how the level-shift gate drivers work, what are negative voltage transient and how they affect level-shift gate drivers. In addition you will learn about the technology difference between Junction isolation and Infineon’s Silicon-On-Insulator technology.
You will have a glimpse of the different gate driver technologies available at Infineon and their benefits.
For a better understanding we will take a look at the optimization of external gate resistors to drive MOSFETs in a given application.
With this training, you will learn how to calculate a gate resistance value for an IGBT application, how to identify suitable gate driver ICs based on peak current and power dissipation requirements, and how to fine-tune the gate resistance value in laboratory environment based on worst case conditions.
We offer a large portfolio of level shift high voltage gate drivers – silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and junction isolated (JI) technologies. Learn about the advantages of Infineon SOI gate driver: integrated bootstrap diode, Low level-shift losses, saving space and cost, and negative VS robustness.
