How to Design Power Electronics: HF Power Semiconductor Modeling

  • Date: ┬áSeptember 3, 2015
  • Event Time: 10am PT/ 1pm ET/ 5pm UTC

Webinar Overview

Why this webcast is important:
After a brief introduction to challenges such as size, weight, efficiency, cost, and robustness in power module design for power electronics, this webcast will lay out a new workflow for such projects that include modeling and characterization of components and devices such as GaN transistors, electro-thermal co-simulation, and integration of GaN into power electronic circuits. We conclude that EDA tools originally intended for RF/microwave design have much to offer in such a workflow. 

Who should view:
Power electronic engineers who want insight and rapid design space exploration that come from virtual prototypes using simulation.
