AgileSwitch® Digital Programmable Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) Gate Drivers
The AgileSwitch family of digital programmable gate drivers was designed to address the critical challenges that emerge in operating SiC and IGBT power devices at high switching frequencies. They are optimized for transportation and industrial applications including heavy-duty vehicles, auxiliary power units, charging, storage, inverters and induction heating.
AgileSwitch gate drivers feature Augmented Switching™ technology and robust short-circuit protection and are fully software configurable. They can switch up to 200 kHz and provide up to seven unique fault and monitoring conditions, including temperature and high-voltage monitoring. These digital programmable gate drivers provide a superior solution than standard analog drivers because they prevent false faults, mitigate ringing and reduce Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), overshoot and undershoot in SiC and IGBT power devices.
How Can Augmented Switching Technology Improve Your Design?
EMI is primarily caused by sharp edges on a digital signal. Smoothing out these edges improves EMI. Augmented Switching technology provides precise settings for turn-on and turn-off that soften the edges of a gate’s output. The analog circuitry in the gate driver and the external buffer will also help eliminate sharp edges. Augmented Switching technology also reduces voltage overshoot and ringing while optimizing a system’s efficiency, which also reduces EMI.
