Evaluation Gate Driver Tool Optimized for the XM3 Module Platform

Wolfspeed’s CGD12HBXMP is a form-factor-fitting, two-channel gate driver for the XM3 power module platform. Each of the two gate drive channels is protected against over-current and reverse polarity. On-Board 2 W isolated power supplies supporting 80 kHz switching frequency.

Features:

  • Optimized for Wolfspeed’s high-performance XM3 SiC half bridge power modules
  • On-Board 2 W isolated power supplies supporting 80 kHz switching frequency
  • User-configurable turn-on and turn-off gate resistors enabling switching loss optimization
  • On-Board overcurrent, shoot-through prevention, and reverse polarity protection
  • Differential inputs for increased noise immunity
  • Very low isolation capacitance (<5 pF) and 100 kV/µs common-mode transient immunity (CMTI)
  • Fault and power indicator LEDs for instant visual feedback

Applications:

  • Evaluation Tool for XM3 1.2kV, SiC MOSFET modules
  • DC bus voltage up to 1000V
