IXYS Introduces an Opto-Isolated Fast Gate Driver for
The IX3180 output is capable of providing 2.5A of peak drive current, has a supply voltage range of 10V to 20V, and is specified over a wide -40°C to +100°C temperature range. The IX3180 has a high speed response time (100ns typical propagation delay) and a 20ns typical pulse width distortion. Under-voltage lockout with hysteresis is provided for additional protection. The IX3180 is well suited for applications that need isolated drivers for fast switching power MOSFETs, such as DC/DC converters, industrial inverters, AC and brushless motor drives, inverters for solar cells, and uninterruptible power supplies.
