Insulated gate driver expands the freedom of inverter drive circuit design

Simplified timing design with built-in protective functions and 2-channel output
SO16L

As a power element gate driver for various inverters such as industrial inverters, UPSs, and power conditioners for photovoltaic power generation, we have provided a wide range of TLP350. In a medium-to-high power system using this TLP350, buffer transistors were placed in front of the gates of IGBT/MOSFET, and the buffer-driven analogue timing designs were overloaded. In addition, the protection circuits for the power elements had to be designed individually.

The new-product TLP5231 released to reduce the burden of these designs has the following features.

  • Buffer MOSFET and soft turn-off MOSFET are externally configured to simplify timing-design.
  • Microcomputer design is easy because restart from abnormal interruption is automatic
  • It can be operated simply by adjusting the external MOSFET according to the capacitance of the power elements, and can be platformized in basic circuit designing deployment.
  • The fault signal is fed back when the power supply voltage is abnormal (UVLO [Note 1]) and when an overcurrent is detected.
  • The soft turn-off function from overcurrent detection allows power device to be shut off more softly than normal off operation.
  • Prevents breakdown of power elements by suppressing surge voltage rises that occur during abnormal shut-off

As described above, there is a merit of reducing the burden on the designer, so please be sure to consider TLP5231 when miniaturizing/enhancing the functionality including the gate driver peripheral circuits.
