Getting from 48 Volts in Emerging Server and Automotive Applications
Cloud servers, advanced gaming systems, artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency mining, and automotive electronics are all converging rapidly on 48 Volts 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 power conversion architectures. In every case, the relatively new GaN transistors and integrated circuits have demonstrated the ability to convert to-and-from 48 Volts with higher efficiency, and smaller size. GaN is also able to significantly reduce costs. In this seminar we will show the various applications and topologies used in these markets and show the steps taken to convince conservative design engineers that the best solution involves GaN.
