This product is available with Conformal Coating


Key Benefits

Unrivalled compactness with broad applicability and high reliability - 85% less components compared to conventional drivers. This product is available with Conformal Coating.


2SC0108T is a new SCALE-2 dual-driver core that combines compact design and high reliability with broad applicability. The 2SC0108T drives all usual IGBT modules up to 600 A /1200 V or 450 A / 1700 V. Embedded paralleling allows simple inverter design even at higher power ratings. Multi-level topologies are also supported. 

Advantages of the Technology 

The 2SC0108T is our most compact driver core available for industrial applications, with a footprint of only 45 x 34.3 mm and profile of 16 mm. The SCALE-2 chipset reduces the component count by up to 80% compared to conventional solutions, thus significantly increasing reliability and reducing costs.

The 2SC0108T combines a complete two-channel driver core with all components required for driving, such as an isolated DC/DC converter, short-circuit protection as well as supply voltage monitoring. Each of the two output channels is electrically isolated from the primary side and the other secondary channel. 

An output current of 8 A and 1 W drive power is available per channel, making the 2SC0108T a suitable choice for universal usage in small and medium power applications. The driver provides a gate voltage swing of +15 V / –8 V. The turn-on voltage is regulated to maintain a stable 15 V regardless of the output power level. 

Excellent EMC performance enables safe and reliable operation even in demanding industrial applications. 

Driving Parallel-Connected IGBTs

The driver allows direct parallel connection of any number of IGBT modules with individual drivers. This new, pioneering concept makes it practical for the first time to build converter series with discrete modules as well as parallel-connected IGBTs without any significant additional development effort.
