Original Press Release:

Richardson RFPD Introduces New SCALE-iDriver™ Integrated Circuits from Power Integrations

Available as 2.5 A, 5.0 A and 8.0 A peak output drive current devices

Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announced the availability and full design support capabilities for the SCALE-iDriver™ family of integrated circuits from Power Integrations, Inc.

The new ICs are galvanically-isolated single-channel gate driver devices that range in output current from 2.5 A to 8 A, the industry’s highest output current without an external booster.

The SID11x2K devices consist of a single-channel IGBT and MOSFET driver in an eSOP package. Reinforced galvanic isolation is provided by Power Integrations’ innovative solid insulator FluxLink technology. The up-to-8 A peak output drive current enables the product to drive devices up to 450 A (typical) without requiring any additional active components. For gate drive requirements that exceed the stand-alone capability of the SID1182Ks, an external amplifier (booster) may be added. Stable positive and negative voltages for gate control are provided by one unipolar isolated voltage source.

Additional features such as short-circuit protection (DESAT) with advanced soft shutdown (ASSD), undervoltage lockout (UVLO) for primary-side and secondary-side, and rail-to-rail output with temperature- and process-compensated output impedance guarantee safe operation even in harsh conditions.

Additional key features of the SCALE-iDriver ICs include:

  • Part numbers: SID1132K (2.5 A), SID1152K (5 A), SID1182K (8 A)
  • Suitable for 600 V, 650 V, 1200 V IGBT and MOSFET switches
  • Up to 250 kHz switching frequency
  • Low propagation delay time: 260 ns
  • Propagation delay jitter: +/-5 ns
  • -40 °C to 125 °C operating ambient temperature
  • High common-mode transient immunity
  • eSOP package with 9.5 mm creepage and clearance

To find more information or to purchase these products today online, please visit the SID1132K (2.5 A), SID1152K (5 A), and SID1182K (8 A) webpages. The devices are also available by calling 1-800-737-6937 (within North America); or please find your local sales engineer (worldwide) at Local Sales Support.
