NORWOOD, Mass. – Analog Devices Inc. in Norwood, Mass., is working together with Microsemi Corp. in Aliso Viejo, Calif., to introduce a high-power evaluation board for or power conversion and energy storage applications.

The board is suitable for applications like DC-DC converters, switched mode power supplies, high-power motor control and aviation actuation systems, and lasers.

The half-bridge silicon carbide power modules offer as much as 1200 volts and 50 amps at 200 kHz switching frequency. The isolated board is engineered to improve design reliability while also reducing the need to create additional prototypes-saving time.

The board can be a building block of more complex topologies, such as full-bridge or multi-level converters, for bench debugging of customer solutions.

It also can function as a final evaluation platform or in converter-like configuration for full test and evaluation of Analog Devices' ADuM4135 isolated gate driver with iCoupler digital isolation technology and LT3999 DC-DC driver in a high-power system.

The high-power evaluation board enables Microsemi's silicon carbide power modules to provide a common test bench, high power density for reduced size and cost, and isolated and conductive substrate and minimum parasitic capacitance for high efficiency, performance, and thermal management.
