High-voltage gate driver saves PCB space

San Jose, Calif.—Fairchild Semiconductor's high voltage gate driver IC (HVIC) with 4A current driving capability is designed to ensure system reliability and reduce board space in consumer and industrial applications.

Featuring wide high-side driver operation with negative VS swings of up to -9.8V (at VBS = 15V), positive and negative VB and a common-mode dv/dt noise canceling circuit, the FAN7371 provides high noise immunity and increases system reliability.

According to Fairchild, the FAN7371 HVIC saves at least 50 percent PCB area compared to optocoupler-based or pulse transformer-based products, and eliminates a buffer transistor compared to other low current HVICs on the market. Fairchild's FAN7371 is aimed at driving MOSFETs and IGBTs in a wide array of applications up to 600V, including plasma display panel (PDP), high intensity discharge (HID) lighting, induction heating and other general purpose inverter applications.

Pricing: In 1,000-piece quantities, $0.96 each.

Availability: Samples available now; delivery: 9 weeks ARO.
