Estimate power semiconductor contributions to thermal budget

Posted: 22 Sep 2008     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:MOSFET  power conversion  thermal budget  IGBT 

Among the greatest challenges in designing today's power-consuming products is managing the system's thermal budget. Since most electronic equipment include some form of power conversion, it is necessary to understand the design's thermal constraints, which form the context for many design decisions.

Here is a brief tutorial on gaining a better understanding of your embedded design's thermal constraints, especially as it relates to the diodes, MOSFETs and IGBTs in the power conversion circuitry.
