Keysight Technologies Enables ON Semiconductor to Deliver a Reliable Design Solution for Power Devices


SANTA ROSA, Calif., November 14, 2018

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company has been selected as an electronic design automation partner by ON Semiconductor, delivering a design solution for power devices that increases reliability and accelerates time-to-market.

The power device industry is driven by demand for more energy efficient products, such as power supplies and solar inverters that need greater efficiency and increased power density. Electric vehicles are pushing for more miles per charge and faster charging times. The technology that is enabling increased efficiency is wide band gap materials, such as Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride. These next generation materials will power future applications for high performance and efficiency.

Power device manufacturers need a reliable design solution for these new materials. Keysight's Power Electronics Design Bundle is built for power electronics engineers, delivering a complete design workflow for power device design.

"Keysight's power electronics design solution introduced a new level of accuracy and flexibility in studying design and device interactions, especially in applications based on wide bandgap power devices," said Mehrdad Baghaie Yazdi, Head of Wide Band Gap Application Engineering at ON Semiconductor. "Keysight's Advanced Design System (ADS) software seamlessly integrates with ON Semiconductor's advanced physical SPICE models and enables us to study, for the first time, device-environment interaction providing deep insight into optimal application design from which both our internal test circuits and customers can benefit."

Keysight's power electronics design solutions integrate with an electromagnetic field solver, which allow designers to visualize effects of the design without the need to build and test time-consuming prototypes. This enhances a designer's confidence and accelerates time-to-market.

"We are excited to collaborate with ON Semiconductor," said Charles Plott, worldwide design software planning manager for EEsof Electronic Design Automation (EDA) at Keysight. "Keysight is playing a pivotal role in accelerating the time-to-market for switch-mode power supplies that utilize ON Semiconductor's wide band gap devices."
