For the purpose of operating power devices, isolated gate drivers offer level changing, isolation, and gate drive strength.
These gate drivers are isolated, so they can operate high-side and low-side devices and, if the right device is utilised, can act as a safety barrier.
Higher system bus voltages are possible thanks to the isolation that the gate drivers give, which is easily in the hundreds of volts.
The Global Isolated Gate drivers market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Isolated gate drivers for IGBTs and MOSFETs with power ratings up to IC = 150A and VCE = 1200V are available from Texas Instruments under the part number ISO5500 2.5A Isolated IGBT/MOSFET Gate Drivers.
An isolation barrier made of silicon dioxide (SiO2) that is capacitive separates the input TTL logic from the output power stage.
The device isolates ground, blocks high voltage, and stops noise currents from accessing the local ground and interfering with or harming delicate equipment when used in conjunction with isolated power supply.
Galvanic isolation is provided between the input section, which is connected to the system’s control portion, and the MOSFET or IGBT being driven via ST’s STGAP series of isolated gate drivers for MOSFETs and IGBTs.
An optically isolated MOSFET gate driver that doesn’t need an external power source is the CPC1596. For internal use, it controls an input voltage ranging from 12.2V to 570V.
With a 4nF gate capacitance, it is specifically made for low-duty-cycle switching and low-frequency operation of external power MOSFETs.
