Gate driver modules feature built-in DC/DC converters
Availability and full design support capabilities for a new series of gate driver modules from Tamura have been announced by Richardson RFPD. The DM Series of gate driver modules features built-in DC-DC converters and drive circuits, making it possible to drive using only a few external components.
The modules are suitable for a range of applications, including power conditioner for industrial use, various inverters and various motor drives.
Additional key features include 5V logic input, over current protection by DESAT detection, and a Miller clamp circuit.
Other benfits are low common mode noise (parasitic capacitance: 15 pF TYP), fast response (100 ns TYP) and a dielectric withstand voltage of AC2500 Vrms.
