A Novel Optically Triggered Self-Adaptive ZVS Method For SiC MOSFETs 

A technical paper titled “Optically Triggered Self-Adaptive Zero Voltage Switching” was published by researchers at University of Cambridge, Zhejiang University, and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Abstract: "Zero voltage switching (ZVS) is useful to increase power electronics efficiency but difficult to achieve due to the nonlinear parasitic capacitance of the power semiconducto... » read more

Don’t Underestimate The Multiphase Buck Voltage Regulator

Step-down (buck) voltage regulators have long been the preferred DC-DC conversion electronic workhorse thanks to their inherently high efficiency. Only in buck mode the current is directed to the output during the entire cycle. The higher delivery of current to the output, per cycle, makes the buck converter the most efficient architecture. As one of many examples, modern microprocessors, from ... » read more
