3-Level Flying Capacitor Booster
In this topology, the additional voltage levels are synthesized by a capacitor, the so-called flying-capacitor.
The voltage of the flying capacitor is half of the output voltage. The capacitor can offset the output voltage with VOUT/2 in a positive and negative direction.
As the operation is three-leveled, the voltage stress on the MOSFET or Diode is decreased. This results in lower EMI, lower current, and lower voltage ripple.
- 3-level topology reduce stress on semiconductor devices
- Various choises of Boost Switch depend on system requirements
- Lower loss SiC MOSFET, IGBT
- Smaller Package choises from 3-leads, 4-leads or 7-leads,
- SiC Shott Key Diode provide lower loss
