MOSFET Drivers

Last modified by Microchip on 2024/02/07 09:10

A gate driver is a type of power amplifier that accepts a low-power input from a controller IC and produces a high-current drive input for the gate of a high-power transistor such as an Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) or power MOSFET. Gate drivers are beneficial to MOSFET operation because the high-current drive provided to the MOSFET gate decreases the switching time between the gate ON/OFF stages which leads to increased MOSFET power and thermal efficiency.

Our diverse array of gate drivers supports a wide range of applications ranging from DC/DC power supplies to a host of motor applications, all while promoting high design flexibility, system efficiency, and robust operation.
