LITTELFUSE CPC1596 570V Optically Isolated Load-Biased Gate Driver requires no external power supply, yet can provide fast load turn-on speeds in the order of tens of microseconds. Solid State Relay is suitable for use in a wide range of power electronics applications. Unit boosts external MOSFET start-up speed by using load-biasing. Product eliminates the need for an opto-gate driver auxiliary power supply, and supports optically isolated SSR-applications for both ac and dc. Unit enables using higher power MOSFETs and can be controlled from a logic port.
