Infineon enhances EiceDRIVER family

Infineon Technologies has expanded its EiceDRIVER X3 Compact (1ED31xx) and the flexible EiceDRIVER X3 Enhanced Analog (1ED34xx) and Digital (1ED38xx) gate driver families.

Both families now offer variants with improved reinforced isolation for higher application safety and long operating life. These new family members are VDE 0884-11 certified and come with 8 mm wide-body packages. Both families are suitable for applications with demanding isolation requirements including industrial drives, solar systems, uninterruptible power supplies, EV charging and other industrial applications.

The EiceDRIVER X3 Compact family has been designed to be versatile and provides driving currents of 5.5, 10 and 14 A and optimised propagation delays of 90 ns. It also includes a Miller clamp that is highly recommended for SiC MOSFET 0 V turn-off. With these features, the 1ED31xx is suitable for high switching frequency applications, IGBT7 and power switches with voltage ratings up to 2300 V.

The EiceDRIVER X3 Enhanced Analog and Digital families offer precise and adjustable DESAT, as well as additional configurable parameters based on I 2C. This supports high flexibility in designs and reduces hardware complexity and evaluation time.

Furthermore, the built-in monitoring functionality enables predictive maintenance.
