InnoSwitch3-AQ ICs with 900 V PowiGaN Switch Support 400 V EV Systems Up to 100 W
PI is expanding its AEC-100Q-qualified InnoSwitch3-AQ flyback switcher IC family with 900 V GaN technology. The new 900 V PowiGaN-based devices are ideal for electric vehicles based on 400 V bus systems. They deliver up to 100 W output power with 93% efficiency and easily accommodate the highly inductive noise spikes often present in automotive environments. Highly efficient power conversion is also important for range extension and thermal management.
Director of Technical Outreach Andy Smith introduces the new parts.
