Microchip (Nasdaq: MCHP) today revealed its AgileSwitch ® electronic programmable entrance chauffeur as well as SP6LI SiC power module kit, a unified system option to help designers rapidly and also effectively embrace disruptive Silicon Carbide (SiC) power tools– minimizing time to market as well as making sure self-confidence in field release.
Silicon chip’s AgileSwitch electronic programmable gate vehicle driver and SP6LI SiC power module set rates development from assessment through production, eliminating the demand to acquire power modules as well as gateway drivers independently– including entrance vehicle drivers that are received end-product manufacturing. With Integrated circuit’s AgileSwitch gate chauffeurs as well as proven, high-performance SiC power modules, designers can avoid qualifying power components and also spending time to establish their own gate vehicle drivers, which can conserve months in development routines.
” We listened to designers in offering complete system options for our microcontrollers as well as analog products,” claimed Leon Gross, vice president of Integrated circuit’s Discrete Item Team company unit. “Now as SiC power components progressively make it possible for the modern technologies changing transport and also various other markets, this total product package permits designers to focus on innovation as well as significantly minimize time to market.”
Silicon chip’s versatile profile of 700, 1200 and 1700V SiC Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD)- based power modules utilizes its latest generation of SiC pass away. On top of that, its dsPIC ® Digital Signal Controllers provide efficiency, reduced power consumption and adaptable peripherals. Microchip’s AgileSwitch family of digital programmable gateway vehicle drivers better speeds up the process of moving from the layout stage to production.
Integrated circuit’s mix of SiC power module and also software-configurable gate motorist features Augmented Switching ™ modern technology that allows developers to affect dynamic problems consisting of voltage overshoot, changing losses and electro-magnetic disturbance. Using a Windows ®- based computer interface, this “configure-at-a-click” method may be made use of throughout the design process, from accelerating early analysis to simplifying last optimization making use of a computer system mouse instead of a welding torch.
Microchip’s AgileSwitch electronic programmable gate vehicle driver and SP6LI SiC power module kit gives layout engineers with a main point of call for assistance, and makes certain that the die, power plan and entrance vehicle driver are designed specifically for each other– eliminating potential development hold-ups.
The kit consists of the AgileSwitch Intelligent Configuration Tool that optimizes gateway turn-on and turn-off, short circuit feedback and module efficiency while reducing voltage overshoot, calling and electro-magnetic disturbance.
