By Alex Lidow,Johan Strydom,Michael de Rooij,David Reusch

Gallium nitride (GaN) is an rising expertise that supplies to displace silicon MOSFETs within the subsequent new release of energy transistors. As silicon ways its functionality limits, GaN units provide stronger conductivity and switching features, permitting designers to tremendously lessen method energy losses, measurement, weight, and cost.

This well timed moment version has been considerably increased to maintain scholars and training energy conversion engineers sooner than the training curve in GaN know-how developments. Acknowledging that GaN transistors usually are not one-to-one replacements for the present MOSFET know-how, this booklet serves as a realistic advisor for realizing easy GaN transistor building, features, and functions. incorporated are discussions at the basic physics of those strength semiconductors, structure and different circuit layout concerns, in addition to particular program examples demonstrating layout innovations while making use of GaN devices.

With higher-frequency switching services, GaN units supply the opportunity to extend potency in latest purposes equivalent to DC–DC conversion, whereas starting chances for brand new purposes together with instant energy move and envelope monitoring. This ebook is a vital studying software and reference consultant to allow energy conversion engineers to layout energy-efficient, smaller and less expensive items utilizing GaN transistors.

Key features:

  • Written through leaders within the energy semiconductor box and pioneers in GaN energy transistor expertise and applications.
  • Contains helpful discussions on device–circuit interactions, that are hugely beneficial because the new and excessive functionality GaN strength transistors require thoughtfully designed drive/control circuits that allows you to absolutely in achieving their functionality potential.
  • Features useful information on formulating particular circuit designs whilst developing energy conversion structures utilizing GaN transistors – see spouse web site for additional details.
  • A necessary studying source for pro engineers and structures designers desiring to completely comprehend new units in addition to electric engineering students.
