Infineon broadens EiceDRIVER portfolio

Infineon Technologies has broaden its EiceDRIVER portfolio with new 650 V half-bridge and high and low side gate drivers.

These devices are based on the company’s silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology and provide leading negative VS transient voltage immunity and monolithic integration of real bootstrap diodes.

According to Infineon, these new features have helped to reduce BOM and enabled more robust designs with MOSFETs and IGBTs in a compact form factor.

The fast level-shift (FLS) family is tailored for high-frequency applications like SMPS and UPS as well as industrial drives and embedded inverters, home appliances, power tools, motor control for fans and pumps.

The EiceDRIVER 2ED2110S06M is a 2.5 A high current driver, while the EiceDRIVER 2ED2101/03/04 are 0.7 A low current drivers. The low current devices are available in DSO-8, while the 2.5 A driver comes in a DSO-16W package.

With 90 ns propagation delays and tight 10 ns maximum delay matching, they support high frequency switching in the 500 kHz range as well as traditional motor control applications. The 2ED2110S06M supports shutdown functionality, separate logic and power ground. The integrated bootstrap diode offers ultra-fast reverse recovery with a typical 30 Ω on resistance.

Negative VS transient voltage immunity of -100 V with repeating 300 ns wide pulses supports greater robustness and reliable operation. Integrated dead-time with cross-conduction logic and independent under-voltage lockout (UVLO) for high and low side voltage supplies provide safe operation.

Both the EiceDRIVER 2ED2110S06M and 2ED2101/03/04 S06F can easily replace earlier generation IR(S)2110/2113S and IR(S)2101/03/04S devices.
