The FRDMGD3160HBIEVM is a half-bridge evaluation kit populated with two GD3160 single channel IGBT/SiC MOSFET gate drive devices. The kit includes the Freedom KL25Z microcontroller hardware for interfacing a PC installed with Flex GUI software for communication to the SPI registers on the MC33GD3160 gate drive devices in either daisy chain or standalone configuration.

The GD3160 translator board is used to translate 3.3 V signals to 5.0 V signals between the MCU and GD3160 gate drivers. The evaluation kit is designed to connect to a single phase of a Hybrid Pack IGBT or SiC MOSFET module for half-bridge evaluations and applications development.
