Decreasing size of consumer electronics pushes demands for higher power density and higher efficiency. Increased switching frequency can reduce the size, but generating MHz gate signals is nontrivial, e.g. due to jitter. We show a custom IC containing a low jitter VCO and gate driver, capable of driving MOSFETs at 5-35 MHz.
