Gate Driver ICs for MOSFETs
Best-in-class gate driver ICs for high voltage and low voltage MOSFET
Our EiceDRIVER™ gate driver family includes isolated gate driver ICs, level shift gate driver ICs and non isolated gate driver ICs optimized for high voltage and low voltage MOSFETs in all application. Gate Driver ICs are availabel in different configurations and offer features like low undervoltage lockout (UVLO) option for MOSFETs (5 V), fast propagation delay, integrated bootstrap diode with SOI technology, high driving current, and over current protection. These features are very important when driving MOSFETs, especially for applications like PFC, switch mode power supplies (SMPS), battery powered application, computing, motor control and drives, lighting, and solar micro inverter.
We also offer automotive qualified gate driver ICs. The trend towards greater efficiency in automotive applications also concerns electric motors. Applications such as power steering, HVAC compressors and engine cooling fans will be controlled by electronic motors in the future. The configurable, H-bridge and three-phase automotive gate driver IC's can be combined with automotive MOSFETs to provide the power and efficiency these systems demand.

This training features how the level-shift gate drivers work, what are negative voltage transient and how they affect level-shift gate drivers. In addition you will learn about the technology difference between Junction isolation and Infineon’s Silicon-On-Insulator technology.
You will have a glimpse of the different gate driver technologies available at Infineon and their benefits.
For a better understanding we will take a look at the optimization of external gate resistors to drive MOSFETs in a given application.
With this training, you will learn how to calculate a gate resistance value for an IGBT application, how to identify suitable gate driver ICs based on peak current and power dissipation requirements, and how to fine-tune the gate resistance value in laboratory environment based on worst case conditions.
We offer a large portfolio of level shift high voltage gate drivers – silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and junction isolated (JI) technologies. Learn about the advantages of Infineon SOI gate driver: integrated bootstrap diode, Low level-shift losses, saving space and cost, and negative VS robustness.
