Arc welding is an assembling process that joins metal parts by causing their fusion through high-current flowing through the electrode and the base material. The current, either DC or AC, is generated by a specifically designed high-frequency inverter switched mode power supply (SMPS) usually based on half-bridge, full-bridge, and two-transistor forward topologies.

The main requirements in an SMPS for welding are high efficiency and reliability as well as power density to enable lighter and more compact designs.

We have a range of power MOSFETS and diodes – both Si and SiC based for higher efficiency – and IGBTs as well as galvanically isolated gate drivers and high-performance 32-bit STM32 microcontrollers to enable compact designs with higher efficiency.
