Power Electronics Conference 2018
Getting from 48 Volts in Emerging Server and Automotive Applications Speaker: Edward Jones, Ph.D., Senior Applications Engineer
Cloud servers, advanced gaming systems, artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency mining, and automotive electronics are all converging rapidly on 48 V as the new standard bus voltage. 48 V has the advantage of not requiring isolation and is therefore simpler, smaller, more efficient, and lower cost than other architectures. GaN technology has demonstrated higher efficiency, and smaller size and is able to significantly reduce costs. In this seminar we will show the various GaN applications and topologies used in these markets.
