Pre-Switch White Paper

This white paper offers a discussion of the power electronics market, the dynamics that have driven it for over thirty years, and the quest to reliably and economically reduce switching and conduction losses. Ever more innovative topologies and semiconductor materials, like the newest generation of silicon IGBTs and MOSFET trench designs and faster SiC and GaN MOSFETs have been used to bring switching times down, but the resulting levels of dV/dt and EMI are a major roadblock to mass adoption.

Alberto Guerra provides an overview of Pre-Switch, a third option based on forced resonance soft-switching driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), which offers a new, low-cost technology which enables a 70-95% reduction in switching losses and solves the dV/dt problems associated faster transistors.
