NXP Semiconductors - FRDMGD31RPEVM

In Stock: Half-Bridge Gate Drive Evaluation Kit for Hitachi Energy’s RoadPak IGBT/SiC Modules



NXP’s FRDMGD31RPEVM is a half-bridge evaluation kit populated with two GD3160 single channel IGBT/SiC MOSFET gate drive devices. The kit includes the Freedom KL25Z microcontroller hardware for interfacing a PC installed with Flex GUI software for communication to the SPI registers on the MC33GD3160 gate drive devices in either daisy chain or standalone configuration.

The GD3160 translator board is used to translate 3.3 V signals to 5.0 V signals between the MCU and MC33GD3160 gate drivers.

FRDMGD31RPEVM originally populated with GD3100, has been updated with GD3160 gate drive devices.
