Infineon Technologies expands its 200 V driver IC portfolio with the IRS2005(S, M) for high voltage, high speed IGBTs and power MOSFETs. The new driver IC features comprehensive protection for motor drive applications with stringent space constraints such as electric garden equipment, golf carts, power tools and mobility scooters. The IRS200x family consists of high-side & low-side and half bridge drivers utilizing Infineon’s proven, robust high-voltage junction isolation (HVJI) technology to realize small packages while remaining tolerant to negative transient voltages. The 200 V devices are tailored for low-voltage (24 V, 36 V, and 48 V) and mid-voltage (60 V, 80 V, and 100 V) applications. They enable high system level efficiency and power density while providing the necessary robustness.
The IRS200x family consists of six devices with a typical sink current of 600 mA and source current of 290 mA. The 200 V devices are compatible to 3.3 V, 5 V, and 15 V logic components. Across the family the driver ICs feature V CC Under Voltage Lock Out (UVLO) while the IRS2005 also includes V BS UVLO, further improving system reliability. The 200V driver ICs are designed for use with bootstrap power supplies which eliminates the need for large and expensive auxiliary power supplies typically needed in discrete optocoupler- or transformer based designs. Additionally, the IRS2003 and IRS2004 include integrated deadtime and shoot-through protection. The 200 V devices feature low quiescent currents. The IRS2004 also features a shutdown input pin.
The 200 V IRS200x driver ICs are offered in eight-pin SOIC, eight-pin DIP or fourteen-pin 4 x 4 mm MLPQ packages with various logic input options and standard pin-out configurations for high design flexibility and fast time to market. Production samples of the IRS200x devices are now available.
