300V Boost Converter with Low-Side EiceDRIVER™ 1ED44176N01F and
UltraFast Copack IGBT IRGP4068D and CoolSiC™ Schottky Diode IDH08G120C5

Over-current protection (OCP) is typically implemented by a current measurement with a comparator and
multiple resistors and capacitors. The 1ED44176N01F provides cost and space savings by integrating the
comparator in the gate driver. The new low-side gate driver utilizes Infineon’s advanced IC technology to realize
best-in-class fault reporting accuracy with OCP threshold tolerance of +/-5%. In addition, Infineon’s IC technology
enables a small PG-DSO8 package by combining the fault output and enable functions into a single pin.

Quickly test the 1ED44176N01F in the boost converter. Simulate the model to see how the 1ED44176N01F
provides over-current protection. Conveniently adjust the parameters to test the key features of 1ED44176N01F.
For example, program the fault clear time by adjusting C_FLTC.
