MOSFET drivers with high current or high voltage

26 May 2021 Power Electronics / Power Management

Modern industrial automation solutions, energy systems and professional equipment are often extremely specialised devices that require high safety and design flexibility for switching elements like semiconductor relays. A photovoltaic driver for galvanic separation, in combination with a distinct MOSFET power switch, leaves nothing to be desired.

The new APV models of Panasonic Industry’s photovoltaic MOSFET drivers can control MOSFETS in a new range by offering high output voltage or high output current. They come in a miniaturised SSOP housing and provide a galvanic separation of 1500 V between the control circuit and the power output circuit. The new high-power type APV3111GVY directly switches power MOSFETs for high load currents, thanks to a generated output voltage of 18 V used for controlling the MOSFET’s gates, a feature that reduces the number of amplifier parts on the PCB.

The APV1111GVY comes into play in the context of high-speed switching with high current requirements – and stands out with a remarkable output current of 45 μA for fast MOSFET gate charging.

It is a straightforward driver principle, one that is ready for efficient and miniaturised next-gen high-power applications in a wide range of temperatures, including power supply devices, measuring equipment, energy storage systems and much more.
