DC-DC converter solutions for HV gate drives
Avnet Abacus offers Murata’s MGJ series DC-DC converters, designed and tested to withstand high dv/dt and DC link conditions without measurable breakdown within the isolation barrier. Gate drive applications create challenging conditions which are not factored into the design of standard DC-DC converters. Murata’s range of converters is specifically engineered and tested to ensure the reliability and safety required in gate drive applications:
- Motor drives / motion control
- Solar inverters
- Medical pump controllers
- Medical X-ray systems
- HVAC inversion systems
- High power AC-DC conversion
- Electrical powered transportation
- (Water) pump and valve control
MGJ6 SIP/DIP Series DC-DC Converter
Offering configurable dual output voltages the MGJ6 series of DC-DC converters is ideal for powering ‘high side’ and ‘low side’ gate drive circuits for IGBTs, silicon carbide and MOSFETs in bridge circuits.
MGJ6 series half-, full- and three-phase bridge DC-DC converters
Learn more about Murata’s MGJ6 half-, full-, and three-phase bridge series DC-DC converters for "high-side" and "low-side" gate drive circuits for IGBTs, and silicon/silicon carbide MOSFETs in bridge circuits.
Isolation and partial discharge testing of DC-DCs for gate drives
DC-DC converters designed to power ‘high side’ gate drives must have characterised isolation and partial discharge performance for guaranteed long-term reliability. Details are given of comparative test results for different insulation types.
