Ultra-small gate-driver IC with TDI for high density
Each time a power MOSFET is being turned on or off in a SMPS, parasitic inductances produce ground-shifts that may cause false triggering of the gate-driver IC. Infineon Technologies has added a device to its cost-effective and compact-size EiceDRIVER 1EDN TDI (truly differential inputs) 1-channel gate-driver family to prevent such consequences.
