Analog Devices’ Small Isolated Gate Drivers Deliver Solutions for Next Generation Power Switch Technology

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today announced small form factor isolated gate drivers designed for the higher switching speeds and system size constraints required by power switch technologies such as SiC (Silicon Carbide) and GaN (Gallium Nitride), while still providing reliable control over switching characteristics for IGBT (insulated gate bipolar transistor) and MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor) configurations. The ADuM4120 and ADuM4121 series leverages ADI’s proven iCoupler® isolation technology combined with high speed CMOS and monolithic transformer technology to enable ultra-low propagation delay without sacrificing common mode transient immunity (CMTI) performance.
