INFINEON MOTIX family 2ED2742S01G, 2ED2732S01G, 2ED2748S01G and 2ED2738S01G 2-channel 160V Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) gate driver ICs are suitable for automotive and industrial motor control applications. Devices are small, powerful and cost-effective gate drive solutions with improved latch-up immunity. Designed with firm’s SOI technology, devices eliminate the parasitic thyristor structure and provides enhanced robustness and immunity to negative transient voltages at the VS pin. Products integrated monolithic bootstrap diodes supply the high-side bootstrap capacitor externally, further reducing system-level BOM costs. Devices come in a compact 3 x 3 mm² VSON10 package and are available in both half-bridge (HB) and high-side + low-side (HS + LS) configurations as well as two different source/sink currents to drive n-channel MOSFETs in various applications.
