The innovative WE-AGDT is a compact transformer in an EP7 package. It features a wide input voltage range from 9 to 36 V, a high saturation current of 4.5 A, as well as very low leakage inductance, and a very low capacitance of 6.8 pF between the windings. This gives rise to high common-mode transient immunity (CMTI) of the gate driver system.
One of the most enduring trends in the electronics industry is miniaturization. Advances in semiconductor technology, such as the implementation of wide-bandgap (WBG) MOSFET and diode devices, emphasize reducing the size of electronic components while significantly improving performance

Intel Enpirion PowerSoC modules are DC-DC step-down converters that integrate nearly all the components needed to build a power supply without sacrificing performance or efficiency. These solutions are designed to meet strict FPGA, ASIC, and processor power requirements.
Push-pull transformers are known to operate well with low voltages and low variations in input and output. This characteristic is ideal for a microcontroller bias or gate driver IC that has constant power levels and input voltages. Unlike typical flyback and forward topologies, the push-pull topology offers high efficiency at a stable input and output current. Any variations in input and output current tend to waste energy as the power dissipated in the switches remains constant.
