White paper: Gate drive measurement considerations

July 20, 2022
The more successful a gate driver is in reducing power-up and power-down times, the bigger the headache for accurate measurements. This white paper provides the guidelines and probing solution to help achieve higher measurement accuracy.

One of the primary purposes of a gate driver is to enable power switches to turn on and off faster, improving rise and fall times. Faster switching enables higher efficiency and higher power density, reducing losses in the power stage associated with high slew rates. However, as slew rates increase, so do measurement and characterization uncertainty. This whitepaper talks about the important considerations to take note of in achieving accurate measurements
