One of the key elements of inverter systems is the isolated gate driver. The switch has a relatively simple function—it’s only a three-terminal device—but it must be carefully interfaced to the systems. The gate driver ensures a clean and accurate system interface with the inserted sub-block driver and switch.
Analog Devices offers scalable solutions from performance to programmable gate drivers, allowing designers to find the best balance of SWaP-C considerations. Our gate drivers leverage the full performance of SiC switches with the highest level of performance in three key areas: common-mode transient immunity (CMTI), drive (strength and slew rate control), and ultrafast short circuit protection.
The efficiency and smooth control of e-motors also highly depend on motor position sensing. ADI’s AMR magnetic end-of-shaft position sensors provide the precision, fast response, and robustness needed to achieve these goals, while our resolver-to-digital converter (RDC) solutions are road proven to achieve the highest level of safety and performance.
