Power Integrations introduces new 3300 V IGBT Module Gate Driver
The new, single-channel, plug-and-play gate driver reports telemetry data for observability, predictive maintenance and lifetime modelling.
Telemetric data available from the 1SP0635V2A0D gate driver includes accurate temperature measurement, which simplifies thermal management and eliminates the need for external temperature sensors. DC link voltage measurement is also incorporated, minimizing external circuitry, reducing system complexity and cost. Closed-loop gate voltage, gate status and short-circuit monitoring ensure that modules are operated within set limits, improving efficiency and avoiding catastrophic failures.
Other features include a status monitor for the fiber-optic interface to ensure that switching commands are received correctly. Similarly, gate monitoring ensures switching commands have been executed correctly and that the power module is in the appropriate operating condition. Short-circuit monitoring provides accurate control, directing the gate driver to respond appropriately in the event of a short circuit.
New 1SP0635V2A0D gate drivers are available for sampling now. Please contact your local sales representative for pricing.
