High-Speed MOSFET Gate Drive Demo Board
IXYS Corporation announced the introduction of the DVRFD615X2 high speed MOSFET demonstration board by its IXYS Colorado division. The DVRFD615X2 is a general purpose circuit board designed to simplify the evaluation of the IXRFD615X2 dual high speed MOSFET gate driver, and to provide a building block for power circuit development. The IXRFD615X2 gate driver is factory installed on the demonstration board and is fully tested. The board configuration allows mounting of either the DE-150 or DE-275 series high speed MOSFETs.
The board design allows both the driver and MOSFETs to be attached to a heat sink, and in doing so allows the DVRFD615X2 to be used as a ground referenced, low-side power switch for both single-ended and push-pull topologies. The board is easy to use, simply provide two input signals and a dc power supply to operate.
Features: Choose either the DE-150 or DE-275 series MOSFETs; Easy to use, requiring only two input signals and supply voltage; Fully tested and operational; Optimized layout to reduce parasitic inductance; Small overall board size: 2-inch by 4.5-inch board.
Applications include: Evaluation of the IXRFD615X2 MOSFET gate driver; Low-side ground referenced power switch; and Building block for single-ended and push-pull topologies.
â€œThe DVRFD615X2 provides a convenient, easy to use demonstration board to simplify the evaluation of a circuit design using the IXRFD615X2 dual high speed gate driver and DE-Series MOSFETs,â€ commented Stephen Krausse, General Manager of IXYS Colorado. â€œWith optimized circuit board layout and the low inductance packaging of the driver and MOSFETs, the DVRFD615X2 offers a fully assembled, off-the-shelf power switch with an excellent combination of power, size and performance once the selected MOSFETs are installed.â€
