Reference design: Broadcom ACPL-352J / ACPL-337J with Infineon 1200V/600V EasyPIM/EconoPIM IGBT
This new IGBT reference design using Broadcom Isolation and Infineon Power Integration Modules can speed up the time to market with its 3-phase Half-bridge design. The reference design uses the Broadcom ACPL-352J and ACPL-337J Gate Drivers with Infineon 1200V/600V EasyPIM and EconoPIM IGBT Modules.
Optical Technology withstands IGBT Destructive Testing - Would alternative Isolators withstand this?
The polyimide film and insulation barrier of Broadcom gate drive optocouplers proves robust even during catastrophic failures like the IGBT destructive tests presented in this paper. Although the gate driver boards were damaged, the gate drive optocouplers were able to pass partial discharge and high voltage tests, providing reinforced insulation, protecting the systems and users.
