Gate Driver Support ICs
Current sense ICs and high voltage start up ICs for MOSFETs and IGBTs
Our solutions are the expert’s choice. We provide current sense ICs (IR2175 family) for sensing the motor phase current through an external shunt resistor, converts from analog to digital signal, and transfers the signal to the low side. Current sensing across a high voltage offset between sense input and data output.
We also offer high voltage start up ICs (IRS25751 family) to provide easy and fast circuit start-up while enabling low circuit standby losses.
These simple ICs are used in common circuit elements, giving designers the flexibility to innovate. The family is a basic toolkit containing ICs for common circuit elements in power electronics.

Decades of application expertise and technology development at both Infineon and International Rectifier have produced a portfolio of gate driver ICs for use with silicon and wide-bandgap power devices, such as MOSFETs, discrete IGBTs, IGBT modules, SiC MOSFETs and GaN HEMTs. We offer excellent product families of galvanic isolated gate drivers, automotive qualifies gate drivers, 200 V, 500-700 V, 1200 V level shift gate drivers, and non-isolated low-side drivers.
Our portfolio spans a variety of configurations, voltage classes, isolation levels, protection features, and package options. State-of-the-art discrete switch families require tuning of gate drive circuits to take full advantage of their capacity and capabilities. An optimum gate drive configuration is essential for all power switches, whether they are in discrete form or in a power module.
