[Munich, Germany, January 4, 2021]Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX/OTCQX: IFNNY) introduces the new EiceDRIVER™ 2EDL8 gate driver IC product family for mobile network infrastructure DC-DC telecom growing demand for bricks. These dual-channel junction isolated gate driver ICs provide high power density, high efficiency and robustness for isolated DC-DC buck converters/telecom bricks enabling macro base stations for 5G and LTE telecom infrastructure.
The new 2EDL8 family consists of four versions with two different pull-up currents and two different input configurations. The 3A (Ampere) version is suitable for retrofit designs, and the industry-leading 4A (Ampere) version is suitable for reducing MOSFET switching losses.
The dual channels of 2EDL802x can operate independently, and are ideal for primary side diagonal drive full bridge and secondary side synchronous rectification stage to reduce freewheeling loss. The 2EDL812x uses a differential input structure with built-in shoot-through protection, making it a perfect choice for a DC-DC brick converter off-diagonally driving the primary side half-bridge stage.
The 2EDL8 features an integrated 120V bootstrap diode and precise channel-to-channel propagation delay matching (±2ns typical). All products in this series are available in the industry standard PG-VDSON-8 leadless package and pin-out.
All four product versions of the EiceDRIVER 2EDL series are available now.
