Boost converters with zero voltage switching (ZVS), have proposed with advantages of high frequency operation, ZVS switching and high circuit efficiency
(Lin et al 2010; Lin et al 2009).
Off-line power supplies improve circuit efficiency
while reducing heat dissipation, providing better power supply performance compared to linear or switch mode power supplies.
MOSFETs are used as rectifiers in these applications because their reduced conduction losses boost circuit efficiency
To help maximize power supply circuit efficiency
, the MOSFET controller functions as a proportional gate drive, which both protects against unnecessary MOSFET turn-off and reduces MOSFET turn-off propagation delay down to 15ns, thereby minimizing reverse current flow.
The ZXGD3104N8's proportional gate-drive operation guards against premature MOSFET turn-off as the drain current decays, thereby maximizing circuit efficiency
and ensuring body diode conduction losses are minimized.
This results in low conduction losses and a substantial improvement in circuit efficiency
- helping design engineers achieve regulatory requirements without the added complexity, such as synchronous rectification.
In shutdown mode, quiescent current is also extremely low at 25nA, helping to boost overall circuit efficiency
Designed to maximize circuit efficiency
and help achieve Energy Star product ratings, ZXGD3103N8 enables designers to reduce rectifier losses by up to 70% and increase power supply efficiency by up to 3.
A MOSFET's on-state resistance and total gate charge performance have a first-order effect on overall circuit efficiency
These new ESD protection devices also improve circuit efficiency
and battery life with an ultra-low leakage of 0.
Improvements in battery technology and circuit efficiency
will make conventional IPGs increasingly effective, which is why we believe that conventional IPGs will continue to hold a dominant place in neuromodulation therapy.
New 200-250 V Schottky's outperform traditional Ultrafast rectifiers - eliminating noise at all temps, minimizing EMI filtering requirements, improving circuit efficiency
and delivering superior reverse recovery and high stability
