Broadcom Webinar: Isolation Products for High Speed Inverters/Converters in Electrical Chargers

DC fast chargers shorten charging time from hours to mere minutes. Such high-powered equipment requires safe and reinforced insulation. In this webinar, we will discuss where isolation is required and how this may be addressed by Broadcom’s wide selection of optocouplers.

  • Learn where optocouplers are used in DC fast chargers
  • Find out about Broadcom’s portfolio of optocouplers – gate drivers, current/voltage sensors, digital optocouplers
  • Check out our new product – ASSR-601J 1500V High Voltage Industrial Photo MOSFET

Avoid erroneous switching with SiC and GaN power devices – Use optical isolation

High switching speeds in smaller industrial equipment will require superior CMR and EMI performance that only optical technology can offer. Broadcom gate drive optocouplers are used extensively in driving silicon-based semiconductors like IGBT and power MOSFETs. Optocouplers are used to provide reinforced galvanic insulation between the control circuits from high voltages and the power semiconductors. The ability to reject high common mode noise (CMR) will prevent erroneous driving of the power semiconductors during high frequency switching. This paper describes how the next generation of gate drive optocouplers can be used to protect and drive SiC MOSFETs.
