Microchip’s Accelerated Silicon Carbide Development Kit includes the hardware and software elements required to rapidly optimize the performance of SiC modules and systems.
This new tool enables designers to adjust system performance through software upgrades using the AgileSwitch® Intelligent Configuration Tool (ICT) and a Device Programmer. No soldering required.
The ICT offers configuration of different drive parameters including on/off gate voltages, DC link and temperature fault levels and Augmented Switching™ profiles.
Small changes to the Augmented Switching profiles can yield dramatic improvements in switching efficiency, overshoot, ringing and short-circuit protection.
The Microchip HPFM-00117 is a single-channel, plug-and-play gate driver board for 1.2-3.3kV high-power modules such as IHV, IHM, HiPAK™ and others.
