Infineon Technologies today announced the expansion of its MOTIX family of products for automotive and industrial motor control applications. To further expand the advanced product family, Infineon introduces the 2-channel MOTIX gate driver ICs 2ED2742S01G, 2ED2732S01G, 2ED2748S01G, and 2ED2738S01G. The 160 V Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) gate drivers are small, powerful, and cost-effective gate drive solutions with excellent latch-up immunity. They are designed for battery powered applications, including cordless power tools, multicopters, drones, and light electric vehicles with batteries up to 120 V.
Infineon’s SOI technology eliminates the parasitic thyristor structure and provides excellent robustness and immunity to negative transient voltages at the VS pin. The 2-channel gate drivers have integrated monolithic bootstrap diodes that supply the high-side bootstrap capacitor externally, further reducing system-level BOM costs. The devices come in a compact 3 x 3 mm² VSON10 package and are available in both half-bridge (HB) and high-side + low-side (HS + LS) configurations as well as two different source/sink currents to drive n-channel MOSFETs in various applications.
The 2ED2732S01G and the 2ED2742S01G deliver a source current of 1 A and a sink current of 2 A, while the 2ED2738S01G and the 2ED2748S01G deliver a source current of 4 A and a sink current of 8 A. All products feature independent undervoltage lockout (UVLO) on both VCC and VB pins – the HB products also integrate shoot-through protection (STP). In addition, the MOTIX 160 V solutions are fully qualified for industrial applications according to the relevant JEDEC78/20/22 tests.
The MOTIX 160V SOI low-voltage motor control solutions are available now. The EVAL-6ED2742S01QM1 evaluation board is available for the 2ED2742S01G. More information is available at www.infineon.com/MOTIX.
