Power Integrations announced today that two members of its SCALE-iDriver™ gate-driver IC family are now certified to AEC-Q100 Grade Level 1 for automotive use. The two parts, SID1132KQ and SID1182KQ, are suitable for driving 650 V, 750 V and 1200 V automotive IGBT and SiC-MOSFET modules, and are rated for peak currents of +/-2.5 A and +/-8 A respectively.

Power Integrations introduced factory conformal coating for its SCALE™ IGBT and MOSFET drivers. Conformal coating enhances system reliability by protecting electronic components against contaminants such as pollution, dust and condensation, which may cause corrosion. PI’s factory-coated gate drivers reduce inventory cost, lead time and overall cost of ownership by eliminating the need for manufacturers to send boards to subcontractors for cleaning and coating.
On February 13th, Power Integrations will present a session at the ECPE Tutorial: Drivers and Control Circuitry for IGBTs and MOSFETs event in Bristol, UK. In it, we will discuss techniques to safely and effectively control both IGBT and MOSFET gates. You can find out more and register for this event on the ECPE website here.
Power Integrations today introduced the newest member of its SCALE-iDriver™ IC family, SID1102K, a single-channel, isolated, IGBT and MOSFET gate driver in a wide-body eSOP package. Featuring a peak drive current of up to 5 A, the new part is able to drive 300 A switches without boosters; external boosters can be used to cost-effectively scale gate current up to 60 A peak. This device provides N-channel drive for both the low and high side booster MOSFET switches which reduces system cost, minimizes switching losses and increases power capability.
