Microchip offers new on-board charger package of automotive-qualified devices

Microchip Technology is offering an on-board charger (OBC) package designed to help developers speed their time to market by using key technologies from one supplier, including the control, gate drive and power stage. 

The package uses a selection of Microchip’s automotive-qualified digital, analog, connectivity and power devices, including the dsPIC33C Digital Signal Controller (DSC), the MCP14C1 isolated SiC gate driver and mSiC MOSFETs, in an industry-standard D2PAK-7L XL package.

To accelerate system development and testing, Microchip offers a flexible programmable solution with ready-to-use software modules for Power Factor Correction (PFC), DC-DC conversion, communication and diagnostic algorithms. The software modules in the dsPIC33 DSC are designed to optimize performance, efficiency and reliability, while offering flexibility for customization and adaptation to specific OEM requirements.

“Microchip established an e-mobility megatrend team with dedicated resources to support this growing market, so in addition to providing the control, gate drive and power stage for an OBC, we can also provide customers with connectivity, timing, sensors, memory and security solutions,” said Joe Thomsen, VP of Microchip’s digital signal controller business unit.
