Title: DIFFERENTIAL GATE RESISTOR DESIGN FOR SWITCHING MODULES IN POWER CONVERTER
Abstract:
A power converter and a method for improving the output power of the power converter. The method includes independently selecting different gate resistor characteristics for the upper switching element and the lower switching element in the switching modules of the power converter to improve switching performance of both the upper and the lower switching element across a wide range of operating conditions, such as different voltages, currents, and/or operating temperatures.
