Dengrove Electronic Components has introduced the latest DC/DC converters from RECOM, to power silicon-carbide (SiC) MOSFET drivers in efficiency-focused applications like electric vehicles (EVs), renewable-energy conversion, and high-power industrial drives.
The RKZ-xx2005D and RxxP22005D series incorporate superior isolation, providing up to 4kVDC or 5.2kVDC respectively to ensure long-term safety in the presence of high potential differences between control and power circuitry in SiC-MOSFET applications.
Providing asymmetrical +20V/-5V outputs, these converters enable the gate driver to apply optimal turn-on and turn-off voltages (VGS). Unlike conventional silicon power transistors, SiC MOSFETs require high VGS for full turn-on, and negative VGS for fast turn-off, to minimise RDS(ON) and switching losses for best overall energy efficiency.
These converters operate at up to 85% efficiency with input voltages of 5V, 12V, 15V or 24V, with a wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +100°C (with derating), UL60950 and IEC/EN60950 certification, and RoHS2 and REACH compliance. www.dengrove.com.
