onsemi showcasing intelligent power technologies at APEC
In booth 1032 at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC 2023) in Orlando, Florida (19-23 March), power semiconductor IC supplier onsemi of Phoenix, AZ, USA is featuring a diverse range of demonstrations for the industrial and automotive markets, including an area dedicated to the EliteSiC silicon carbide family, complete with an electric vehicle (EV) charging station. Another showcase demonstrates the latest industrial power supply and charging solutions: a 6.6/11kW power factor correction (PFC) inverter, an ultra-high-density 240W USB PD 3.1 solution and a 600W battery charger.
At APEC, onsemi is introducing and demonstrating a new simulator for the EliteSiC family. The online tool allows engineers to virtually test and validate EliteSiC products through an expansive library of customizable circuit technologies. When the simulator is used with advanced PLECS models, engineers can gather insights into the application at a very early stage of the design cycle without relying on hardware fabrication and testing. APEC attendees can learn more about the tool in two presentations:
- ‘Online SiC System Level Simulator Driven by Advanced PLECS Models’ by Didier Balocco (21 March, 3:45-4:15pm);
- ‘A Virtual Prototyping System for Silicon Carbide Power Modules’ by James Victory (23 March, 11:30-1:30pm).
Alongside the simulator, onsemi is announcing a new series of 1200V Trench Field Stop VII (FS7) insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs). The devices provide low switching loss and optimized switching to provide high-efficiency operation in various industrial applications, including motor control, uninterruptable power supply (UPS) and solar applications.
