High Frequency MOSFET Gate Drivers: Technologies and Applications — Recommend this title to your library

Thank you

Your recommendation has been sent to your librarian.

Power MOSFETs are popular in numerous high-frequency power converters applications extensively. With the high-frequency trend of power converters, the high-frequency switching loss and gate drive loss need to be minimized, which causes serious challenge on advanced high-speed gate driver technology since the gate drivers serve as a critical role between the control and power devices. This book focuses on the gate driver topic systematically providing the fundamental knowledge of high-frequency gate driver technologies.
