Gate Driver has external pin for dead-time control.

Press Release Summary:

Model FAN7387 high-voltage gate driver (HVIC) is suited for ballast, SMPS, and half-bridge inverter applications. It features high-side driver operation with negative Vs swings up to -9.8 V and 220 µA quiescent current to enable low power consumption in standby mode. IC utilizes lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and is characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with Pb-free reflow requirements of J-STD-020 IPC/JEDEC standard.

Original Press Release:

Fairchild Semiconductor's High-Voltage Gate Driver Simplifies Design for Ballast, SMPS and Half-Bridge Inverter Applications

The FAN7387 is the Industry's Only HVIC with External Pin for Dead-Time Control

SAN JOSE, Calif. - September 11, 2008 - Fairchild Semiconductor provides designers with another high performance, design-flexible and low power solution for ballast, SMPS and half-bridge inverter designs with its self-oscillating, high-voltage gate driver. The FAN7387 is the industry's only high-voltage gate driver (HVIC) with an external pin for dead-time control, providing engineers with excellent design flexibility. This HVIC is designed with an innovative noise canceling technique and features high-side driver operation with negative Vs swings up to -9.8V. This feature protects the IC from negative noise and makes it more noise immune. Alternate solutions must use an additional diode to achieve this same robust protection.

All of Fairchild's HVICs, including the FAN7387, offer significant power savings due to their low quiescent current (220µA) resulting in low power consumption in standby mode. This HVIC also provides stable performance through its low temperature dependency and excellent system reliability over a wide range of operating conditions.

The FAN7387 utilizes lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union's Directive on the restriction of the use of certain substances (RoHS).
