PVI5080N Output Variation

The PVI Series Photovoltaic Isolator generates an electrically isolated DC
voltage upon receipt of a DC input signal. It is capable of directly driving
gates of power MOSFETs or IGBTs. It utilizes a monolithic integrated
circuit photovoltaic generator of novel construction as its output. The
output is controlled by radiation from a GaAlAs light emitting diode (LED),
which is optically isolated from the photovoltaic generator.

The PVI Series is ideally suited for applications requiring high-current and/or
high-voltage switching with optical isolation between the low-level driving
circuitry and high-energy or high-voltage load circuits. It can be used for
directly driving gates of power MOSFETs. The dual-channel device allows
its outputs to drive independent discrete power MOSFETs, or be connected
in parallel or in series to provide higher current drive for power MOSFETs
or higher voltage drive for IGBTs. The PVI Series Photovoltaic isolators
employ fast turn-off circuitry.
