Infineon adds 24V dual-channel low side EiceDriver with integrated thermal pad
The EiceDriver range now includes a 24V dual-channel, low side gate driver, with an integrated thermal pad. It can be operated with high switching frequencies as well as highest peak output currents and offers an enable function, says Infineon.
The gate driver is suitable for applications with higher switching frequencies 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 EasyPack and EconoPack.
The EiceDriver 2ED24427N01F provides a symmetrical output stage with 10A source and sink drive capability with 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 55ns propagation delays and 450mOhm (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 operation at lower temperatures under high current conditions or at higher switching frequencies, Infineon explains. The 2ED24427N01F model is rated for industrial temperature grade operation.
The EiceDriver 2ED24427N01F is available for order now in an industry standard DSO-8 (SOIC-8) package with a thermal pad and 2kV HBM ESD ratings.
