‘Know Your Gate Driver’: Videos from @TXInstruments Explore VDD, Drive Current, Datasheets, and More

Texas Instruments have multiple ‘training’ videos (five at this time) exploring gate drivers and their specifications. Videos thus far include: Negative Voltage, Drive Current, Delay Matching, VDD, and Datasheet Science – hopefully with more to come! Each video is around 1:40 long so they’re quick and to-the-point.

We live in a world where design engineers are on a seemingly constant pursuit for higher efficiency. Everyone wants to do more with less power. Higher system efficiency is a team effort that includes (but is not limited to) better-performing gate drivers, controllers and new wide-bandgap technologies. In this multi-part video series, we will focus on the gate drivers and how choosing the right driver can help your whole system design. You will learn about important gate driver specs, why they’re important, and how they can influence the systems around them. Each video is less than 3 min and is filled with tips and tricks to consider when designing your power system!
