24-V dual-channel gate driver supports high switching frequencies

This post was originally published on this site

Infineon Technologies AG has expanded its EiceDRIVER portfolio with the new 24-V dual-channel, low-side gate driver with an integrated thermal pad. The new 2ED24427N01F is rated for industrial temperature grade operation, targeting industrial motor drives and control, power management, and fast electric-vehicle (EV) charging applications.

The device can be used for higher switching frequency applications such as power factor correction and synchronous rectification, as well as a transformer driver or a buffer driver for parallel MOSFET applications or high-current IGBT modules such as Infineon’s EasyPACK and EconoPACK.

The EiceDRIVER 2ED24427N01F provides a symmetrical output stage with 10-A source and sink drive capability with integrated under-voltage lockout (UVLO) protection and logic level enable control. The driver enables high switching frequencies with reduced switching losses of the power transistors with 55 ns propagation delays and 450 mΩ (max) source and sink ON resistance per channel.

The EiceDRIVER 2ED24427N01F can be ordered now in an industry-standard DSO-8 (SOIC-8) package with a thermal pad and 2 kV HBM ESD ratings.

Infineon also recently expanded its EiceDRIVER 1ED Compact isolated gate driver series with the introduction of the X3 Compact (1ED31xx) family, targeting industrial drive and EV charging applications.
