Thu, 01/02/2014 - 10:01am

gate driverInternational Rectifier introduced the compact AUIR08152S automotive-qualified gate drive IC featuring high output current in excess of 10 A that shrinks system size and is said to boost performance in automotive and industrial high-power switching applications. The buffer gate driver enables the use of any standard low current gate driver, opto-coupler or CMOS isolator to drive large size IGBTs or MOSFETs in switching applications and efficiently boosts any low or under-powered gate drive into a high current drive system. Available in a compact SO8 package, the highly integrated buffer IC can replace up to 10 discrete components, according to the company, for simpler, smaller and more robust system design.
