High-Reliability SCALE-2 Driver Technology to 1200 V Applications

High-Reliability SCALE-2 Driver Technology to 1200 V Applications

Power Integrations announced a family of galvanically isolated single-channel gate driver ICs ranging in output current from 2.5 A to 8 A  – the industry’s highest output current without an external booster. SCALE-iDriver™ ICs, optimized for driving both IGBTs and MOSFETs, are the first products to bring Power Integrations’ pioneering FluxLink™ magneto-inductive bi-directional communications technology to 1200 V driver applications. FluxLink technology eliminates the need for unreliable opto-electronics and the associated compensation circuitry, thereby enhancing operational stability while reducing system complexity. In addition to combining industry-leading isolation technology, the new gate drivers incorporate advanced system safety and protection features commonly found in medium- and high-voltage applications, further enhancing product reliability. The innovative eSOP package features 9.5 mm of creepage and a CTI of 600, ensuring substantial operating voltage margin and high system reliability.
