MANSFIELD, Texas – Electronics distributor Mouser Electronics Inc. in Mansfield, Texas, is stocking the SCALE-2 insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) power electronics gate drivers from Power Integrations in San Jose, Calif.

The SCALE-2 IGBT gate drivers are suitable for driving power MOSFETs and devices based on materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) operating at switching frequencies up to 500 kHz.

Offered in single- and dual-channel options, the modules provide all the common driver functions necessary to operate industrial, motor control, power transmission, traction, solar, wind, and automotive applications.

These flexible IGBT gate driver cores integrate commonly required driver functions like galvanic isolation, protection, and DC-DC conversion in one module.

The Power Integrations SCALE-2 IGBT gate drivers are based on an advanced ASIC chipset that integrates the functionality of a dual-channel gate driver core in a primary-side chip logic-to-driver interface (LDI) and a secondary-side chip intelligent gate driver (IGD).

The integrated level of the ASIC chipset enables designers to reduce the number of discrete components. The modules are available with blocking voltage capabilities from 600 to 6500 volts and from 1 to 20 Watts per channel.

To ensure optimum performance for direct driving of external N-type DMOS elements, the pre-driver stages of each of the modules incorporate separate gate resistors for independent control of on/off functionality.
