Chalk Talks Featuring Murata
DC-DC for Gate Drive Power
In motor control and industrial applications, semiconductor switches such as IGBTs and MOSFETS of all types - including newer wide-bandgap devices are used extensively to switch power to a load. This makes DC to DC conversion for gate drivers a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Barnes of Murata about DC to DC conversion for gate drivers for industrial and motor control applications.
Choosing the right passives for your design can be a huge headache. Sorting through hundreds of data sheets looking for the component with just the right specs, balancing against your BOM requirements, and confirming availability can consume valuable engineering time. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Arthur Evans of Murata about a new tool that will make passive selection a snap.
