High-Side Driver IC Handles Harsh Automotive Apps
Intended for automotive gate drive applications such as injection and solenoid driver management, the AUIRS2016S high-voltage power MOSFET high-side driver from International Rectifier provides negative voltage spike immunity against catastrophic events during high-current switching and short circuit conditions. The device’s output driver features a 250--mA high-pulse current buffer stage. The channel can be used to drive an N-channel power MOSFET in the high-side configuration, operating up to 150V above ground. Qualified to AEC-Q100 standards, the AUIRS2016S also offers 5-V compatible logic level inputs, one high-side output and internal low side Vs recharge, CMOS Schmitt trigger inverted input with pull up resistor and CMOS Schmitt trigger inverted reset with pull down resistor. From $0.98 each in 100,000-unit quantities.
