Protect IGBTs by Sensing Current Using Optical Isolation Amplifi ers Download White Paper 151Ko

Insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) require full protection to avoid damage and failures resulting from conditions such as short circuits, overloads and overvoltages. The protection is key to ensuring safe and stable power-converter operations in applications such as motor drives and solar and wind power generation systems. To detect over-current and overload conditions, isolation amplifiers featuring fast response or fast fault feedback can be used on the output phases and the DC bus.

This month, Freescale is giving away 5 RIoTboards, worth 74 dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

 

Designed to run Android operating systems efficiently or to run under Linux, the board is based on the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor; using the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture.

The RIoTboard platform also includes a rich set of peripherals including a 10M/100M/Gb Ethernet port, 1 USB 2.0 OTG High Speed and 4 USB 2.0 High Speed 2.0 Hosts, LVDS, HDMI and Parallel RGB interfaces, micro TF and SD card interfaces, analog headphone/microphone jacks, camera interface, serial ports, JTAG and boot configuration interfaces. This together with a low power consumption makes it fit for the design of IoT data hubs.
