The What, Why and How of Isolated Gate Drivers

In this article from Analog Devices, you will receive an introduction to what isolated gate drivers are, why they are required, and how their fundamental parameters are defined.

In this article from Analog Devices, you will receive an introduction to isolated gate drivers. The topics covered include the need for a gate driver, as well as a gate driver’s key parameters including drive strength, timing, isolation and noise immunity. To provide a foundation for learning, a little more information is shared about what an IGBT/power MOSFET is, how the gate is the electrically isolated control terminal and how a MOSFET/IGBT is used as a switching element in power supply circuits, motor drives and other systems. Learn more about what these gate drivers are, why they are required, and how their fundamental parameters are defined.
