This is a half-bridge evaluation kit populated with two MC33GD3160 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 KITGD3160TREVB translator board is used to translate 3.3 V signals to 5.0 V signals between the MCU and MC33GD3160 gate drivers. The evaluation kit is designed to connect to a Wolfspeed XM3 SiC MOSFET module for half-bridge evaluations and applications development.
