SCALE-iDriver IC Family


Power Integrations talks about SCALE-iDriver

The SCALE-iDriver™ Family of gate driver ICs, optimized for driving both IGBTs and MOSFETs, are the first products to bring Power Integrations’ pioneering FluxLink™ magneto-inductive bi-directional communications technology to 1200 V and 1700 V driver applications.

  • FluxLink technology eliminates the need for short-lived opto-electronics and associated compensation circuitry, thereby enhancing operational stability while reducing system complexity
  • Advanced system safety and protection features, commonly found in medium- and high-voltage applications, enhance product reliability
  • Innovative eSOP package features 9.5 mm of creepage and a Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) = 600, ensuring substantial operating voltage margin and high system reliability

Power Integrations SCALE-iDriver ICs for automotive applications (SID1132KQ/SID1182KQ) are AEC-Q100 qualified, can drive up to 8A @ 125°C junction temperature, and support 600, 650 and 1200V IGBT and SiC inverter designs up to several hundred kW without a booster stage.
