Infineon expands EiceDriver for reinforced isolation
Infineon Technologies has expanded its EiceDriver X3 Compact (1ED31xx) and the EiceDRIVER X3 Enhanced Analog (1ED34xx) and Digital (1ED38xx) gate driver families. Both families now offer variants with superior reinforced isolation for higher application safety and long operating life. The new family members are VDE 0884-11 -certified. With 8mm wide-body packages, both families are suitable for applications with demanding isolation requirements including industrial drives, solar systems, uninterruptible power supplies, EV charging and other industrial applications.
The versatile EiceDriver X3 Compact family provides driving currents of 5.5, 10 and 14A and optimised propagation delays of 90 nano seconds. The family also includes a Miller clamp that is recommended for SiC MOSFET 0V turn-off. The 1ED31xx is suitable for high switching frequency applications, IGBT7 and power switches with voltage ratings up to 2300 V.
The EiceDriver X3 Enhanced Analog and Digital families offer precise and adjustable DeSat, as well as additional configurable parameters based on I2C for design flexibility and reduces hardware complexity and evaluation time. Built-in monitoring functionality enables predictive maintenance.
The EiceDriver X3 Enhanced 1ED34xx and 1ED38xx as well as the EiceDriver X3 Compact 1ED31xx are available for order now. Also available are the evaluation boards EVAL-1ED3121MX12H, EVAL-1ED3122MX12H, EVAL-1ED3124MX12H, EVAL-1ED3491MX12M.
