Six-Channel SCALE™-1 Driver Core

Drives IGBTs from 600 V to 1.7 kV / up to 200 A
Proven SCALE™-1 Technology

This is an active product that is not recommended for new designs.
Suggested alternative(s): 



6SD106EI series 6-channel SCALE-1 driver cores for IGBTs up to 1700 V have a gate current capability of ±6 A and are optimized for IGBTs from 50 A to typically 200 A. The six drive channels feature electrical isolation between the control electronics and the power section. The gate voltage is ±15 V.
Each channel is equipped with a programmable Vce-monitoring function for protection against short circuit and overcurrent.

The driver is equipped CONCEPT's SCALE-1 driver chipset and can be operated in two modes: either with two independent driver channels or as a half-bridge driver with internal dead-time generation.

The integrated, electrically-isolated DC/DC converter supplies a drive power of 1 W per channel.

Highest Reliability
SCALE-1 drivers have been established as an industrial standard since 1999, and the 6SD106EI has been proven in numerous industrial and rail applications.
