IGBT/MOSFET Gate Drivers Optocouplers
The portfolio of IGBT and MOSFET Gate Drivers Optocouplers from ON Semiconductor includes a variety of current gate drive octocouplers that drive power IGBTs and MOSFETS. They consist of an Aluminum Gallium Arsenide (AlGaAs) Light-Emitting Diode (LED) optically coupled to an integrated circuit with a high-speed driver for a push-pull MOSFET output stage. These devices use a proprietary coplanar packaging technology from ON Semiconductor, Optoplanar®, and optimized IC design to achieve high noise immunity, characterized by high common-mode rejection. Additional ideal performance characteristics and features of the portfolio include high noise immunity, wide supply voltage range, fast switching speed, Under-Voltage Lock-Out (UVLO) with hysteresis, and the use of P-channel MOSFETs at the output stage enables output voltage swing close to the supply rail. The devices operate at an extended industrial temperate range from -40°C up to 125°C temperature range and achieved the following safety and regulatory approvals: UL1577 and DIN EN/IEC60747-5-5. Applications include AC-DC Merchant Power Supply, Energy Generation and distribution, Industrial Motor, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), Industrial Inverter, Induction Heating, Isolated IGBT/Power MOSFET Gate Drive, and AC and Brushless DC Motor Drives.
