APEC: How to Build an EV Charger with SiC TransistorsMicrochip’s Jason Chiang reviews the reference design for a 30kW inverter aimed at EV charging applications that is based on silicon-carbide semiconductors. The resulting circuitry is roughly three times smaller than the equivalent silicon-based approach. The reference design operates from a 380-400-V ac input and employs a DSP chip to handle its functional parameters.
