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