Gate Driver ICs
EiceDRIVER? gate driver ICs for MOSFETs, IGBTs, SiC MOSFETs and GaN HEMTs
Gate Driver ICs subcategories
Every switch needs a driver – the right driver makes a difference. Power electronics applications employ power device switches. And power device switches require optimum gate drive solutions. That’s why we offer more than 500 EiceDRIVER? gate driver IC solutions suitable for any power switch, and any application.
EiceDRIVER? gate drivers provide a wide range of typical output current options, from 0.1-A up to 10-A. Robust gate drive protection features such as fast short-circuit protection (DESAT), active Miller clamp, shoot-through protection, fault, shutdown, and over current protection, make these driver ICs well-suited for both silicon and wide-bandgap power devices, including CoolGaN?, and CoolSiC?.

EiceDRIVER? gate driver IC technologies
Decades of application expertise and technology development at both Infineon and International Rectifier have produced a portfolio of gate driver ICs for use with silicon and wide-bandgap power devices, such as MOSFETs, discrete IGBTs, IGBT modules, SiC MOSFETs and GaN HEMTs. We offer excellent product families of galvanic isolated gate drivers, automotive qualifies gate drivers, 200 V, 500-700 V, 1200 V level shift gate drivers, and non-isolated low-side drivers.
Our portfolio spans a variety of configurations, voltage classes, isolation levels, protection features, and package options. State-of-the-art discrete switch families require tuning of gate drive circuits to take full advantage of their capacity and capabilities. An optimum gate drive configuration is essential for all power switches, whether they are in discrete form or in a power module.
