Power Integrations’ new 1700V SCALE-iDriver gate driver IC targets apps from 480-690 Vac

The SCALE-iDriver galvanically isolated single-channel gate driver ICs from Power Integrations now support IGBT blocking voltages up to 1700 V, which are typically used in 480 to 690 VAC line applications. They are ideal for industrial drives, 3-level power supplies/UPS and photovoltaic inverters, commercial EV and traction auxiliary equipment. 1700 V SCALE-iDriver ICs deliver a gate current of up to 8 A to support systems of up to 110 kW without an external booster, and up to 30 A gate current for over 400 kW with an external booster stage.

1700 V SCALE-iDriver ICs, are optimized for driving both IGBTs and MOSFETs and combine Power Integrations’ pioneering FluxLink™ magneto-inductive bi-directional communications technology with SCALE™ power device driver technology. The new device family also makes use of the innovative eSOP™ package which provides greater than 9.5 mm of creepage and a CTI of 600 for high breakdown protection and increased system reliability.

1700 V SCALE-iDriver ICs meet the upcoming IEC 60747-17 and VDE 0884-17 standards. Devices feature desaturation (short-circuit) protection with Advanced Soft Shut Down (ASSD) functionality, providing reliable and easy-to-implement protection to the power switch.
