Characterization Of Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor Devices

Characterization of Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor Devices

by Fei Wang; Zheyu Zhang; Edward A. Jones

Based on the authors' years of extensive experience, this is an authoritative overview of Wide Bandgap (WBG) device characterization. It provides essential tools to assist researchers, advanced students and practicing engineers in performing both static and dynamic characterization of WBG devices, particularly those based on using silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductors. The book presents practical considerations for real applications, and includes examples of applying the described methodology.

Wireless Power Handbook 2

Wireless Power Handbook

by Michael A. de Rooij

This second edition handbook comes less than a year following the release of the first edition – this is the pace at which the understanding and application of wireless power transfer is moving. “Cut the cord” is the battle cry – and now that we know it can be done, what’s holding us back, let’s pick up speed and get on with it!

The scope of this second edition has expanded to include the latest work on AirFuel Alliance class 2 and class 3 transmitters, adaptive tuning, radiated EMI, multi-mode wireless power systems, and control strategies. There are also systems demonstrated using the latest in eGaN FETs and integrated circuits that set new efficiency benchmarks as well as reduce system costs.

DC-DC Converter Handbook

by David Reusch & John Glaser

A Supplement to GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion

Demand for information is growing at unprecedented rates and society’s insatiable appetite for communication, computing and downloading, is putting ever-increasing demands for improved efficiencies and performance on data centers.

Our first challenge – how will power conversion systems continue to improve in order to keep pace with the rapid improvements in computing power and the need for efficient data centers…

The second focus – to create power conversion solutions using GaN devices and making performance comparisons with silicon power transistors traditionally used in power conversion systems…

And, finally – to propose, create, and test a new power delivery architecture taking advantage of the superior performance attributes of GaN.
