Half-bridge reference design allows IGBTs, GaN hemt, SiC mosfet and compound cascode switches to be compared

Half-bridge reference design allows IGBTs, GaN hemt, SiC mosfet and compound cascode switches to be compared

Called R-REF01-HB, the design consists of a half-bridge layout with an isolated driver stage using isolated power supplies (Recom R12Pxx) for both the low-side and the high-side switching transistors – both get both polarities so there is no problem creating bipolar drive waveforms. Data isolation comes through a Silicon Labs Si827x, whose output is boosted throughRead more about Half-bridge reference design allows IGBTs, GaN hemt, SiC mosfet and compound cascode switches to be compared[…]
