Infineon Technologies AG has widened its EiceDRIVER portfolio with the new 24V dual-channel low side gate driver with an integrated thermal pad. The device can be operated with high switching frequencies, and the highest peak output currents and provide an enable function. The gate driver is ideal for applications with higher switching frequencies including PFC and synchronous rectification and a transformer driver or a buffer driver for parallel MOSFET applications or high-current IGBT modules such as EasyPACK and EconoPACK.
The EiceDRIVER 2ED24427N01F offers a symmetrical output stage with 10A source and sink drive capability with integrated UVLO protection and logic level enable control. The gate driver is offered in a DSO-8 package with a thermally efficient and exposed power pad. With 55ns propagation delays and 450mOhm (max) source and sink ON resistance per channel, the driver provides high switching frequencies with diminished switching losses of the power transistors.
The integrated thermal pad provides very low thermal resistance to facilitate reliable operation at lower temperatures under high current conditions or higher switching frequencies. The device is rated for industrial temperature grade operation.
