Anaheim Convention Center
Anaheim, CA

Visit Synopsys at Booth #1135

Talk with experts to learn more about the Saber power electronics solution, a comprehensive simulation platform for power system design.

APEC 2019 continues its long-standing tradition of addressing issues of immediate and long-term interest to the practicing power electronics engineer. APEC has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics:

  • Equipment OEMs that use power supplies and dc-dc converters in their equipment
  • Designers of power supplies, dc-dc converters, motor drives, uninterruptable power supplies, inverters and any other power electronic circuits, equipment and systems
  • Manufacturers and suppliers of components and assemblies used in power electronics
  • Manufacturing, quality and test engineers involved with power electronics equipment
  • Marketing, sales and anyone involved in the business of power electronics
  • Compliance engineers testing and qualifying power electronics equipment or equipment that uses power electronics

Evaluation of an Automated Modeling Tool Applied to New 600 V, 2 a Vertical GaN Transistors

The Power MOSFET Tool through Synopsys® Saber® can estimate static and dynamic behaviors of devices given measured static characteristic curves even if a datasheet is unavailable or advanced device properties are less understood. This paper presents a model of a new vertical GaN on GaN transistor. The model matches the experimental static results within 8.42% error and predicts the 8.48 ns turn-on and 30.2 turn-off time within a couple nanoseconds. With optimization of the parasitic elements in the circuit, the model matches the rise and fall rates as well as the frequency and magnitude of the harmonic ringing.
