App note: Snubber design for noise reduction in switching circuits

Minimize noise by properly designing a snubber circuit in switching converters, app note from Alpha & Omega Semiconductor. Link here (PDF) In high frequency switching converters the designers face a common challenge of dealing with switching noise. In particular when the high side Mosfet turns on, the body diode of the low side FET, which […]

App note: Snubber capacitors for complete insurance of power semiconductors

An application note from WIMA about snubber capacitors, Link here. The trend of modern semiconductor technology towards increasingly powerful applications results in the fact that switched currents and voltage levels are continuously increased and that simultaneously the switching speed is also increasing markedly. The developments in the area of power semiconductors include the component group […]
