On May 10, 2021, Dalian United General Assembly holdings, a leading distributor of semiconductor components committed to the Asia Pacific market, announced that its Youshang launched a 500W full bridge phase-shift zero voltage switching DC-DC converter digital power solution based on Italian French semiconductor (st) stm32g474.

Due to the increasingly stringent demand for work efficiency and volume of modern electronic products, the traditional linear power supply is gradually replaced by the switching power supply. By increasing the switching frequency, the switching power supply can effectively reduce the volume of transformer and inductor core, improve the system efficiency and reduce the volume of products at the same time. However, the power transistor of the power supply with general hard switching must bear greater switching spike and switching loss. With the increase of switching frequency, the overall efficiency of the circuit will decrease.

In order to solve this problem, this scheme adopts flexible switching technology to achieve zero voltage switching with full bridge phase-shifting architecture, which can greatly reduce the efficiency loss of hard switching, suppress switching surge, reduce electromagnetic interference and increase the performance of power transistor. St stm32g4 series products are based on 170mhz arm ® Cortex ®- The M4 high-speed core is built with floating-point unit and DSP extended instruction set. At the same time, it is equipped with a new hardware math accelerator of St, which once again improves the operation performance of the chip.
