Low side gate drivers │ EiceDRIVER™ 1EDN TDI
1-channel low-side EiceDRIVER™ family with truly differential inputs (TDI) prevents false triggering of power MOSFETs
The input signal levels of conventional low-side gate driver ICs are referenced to the ground potential of the gate driver IC. If in the application the ground potential of the gate driver IC shifts excessively false triggering of the gate driver IC can occur.
The 1EDN7550 and 1EDN8550 gate driver ICs have truly differential inputs. Their control signal inputs are largely independent from the ground potential. Only the voltage difference between its input contacts is relevant. This prevents false triggering of power MOSFETs.
