As Power MOSFET vendors increase the switching speed of their MOSFETs, voltage transients related to the high di/dt, and the parasitic inductances of PCB layouts become more difficult for the designer to control. In this live webinar, we will examine the risk factors associated with repetitive avalanche. Topics covered in this seminar include descriptions on potential failure mechanisms within the MOSFET structure due to avalanche, information on how these failure mechanisms are minimized with NXP's Trench MOSFETs, how to avoid common application pitfalls that create avalanche, and how to estimate the repetitive avalanche capabilities of NXP MOSFETs. Mark your calendars!
