Influence of parasitic components in switching behavior

Super-junction MOSFETs

Influence of parasitic components in switching behavior

The faster switching of the power MOSFETs enable higher power conversion efficiency. However, parasitic components in the devices and boards are involving switching characteristics more as the switching speed is getting faster. This creates unwanted side effects, like high voltage or current spikes or poor EMI performance. lesen...
