The SCALE-iDriver™ Family of gate driver ICs are single-channel IGBT and MOSFET drivers in a standard eSOP package. Reinforced galvanic isolation is delivered using Power Integrations’ innovative solid insulator FluxLink™ technology. Output drive current up to 8 A (peak) enables the product to drive devices up to 600 A (typical) without requiring any additional active components. For higher current switching semiconductors, where the required gate current exceeds the SCALE-iDriver’s stand-alone capabilities, an external amplifier (booster) may be added. Stable positive and negative voltages for gate control are provided by one unipolar insulated voltage source.
