Mission-critical power start-up demands perfect performance every time
Design of a mission-critical, rapid-start, isolated power system needs to be flawless. These systems, leveraged in mission-critical military applications, need to start in milliseconds - every time.
PCIM 2017 in a nutshell
It was the year that saw the evolution of wide-bandgap technology and its uptake by design engineers into actual products. Yes, there are concerns that SiC is more expensive at the device level than Si but that’s not true at the system level when the frequency is increased from 10 kHz to 40 kHz, according to Infineon. Automotive appeared to be the primary target for most wideband gap devices, but certainly there were plenty of products that targeted photovoltaics, EV charging, traction control, and motor drives.
