June 26, 2019 – Geneva, III.:

Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new gate driver integrated circuit from Power Integrations, Inc.

The SIC1182K SCALE-iDriver™ is a high-reliability, single-channel silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET gate driver that delivers the industry-leading peak-output gate current without an external boost stage. The new device is available in an eSOP-R16B package. Reinforced galvanic isolation is provided by Power Integrations’ robust solid insulator FluxLink™ technology. Up to +/-8 A peak output drive current enables the product to drive devices with nominal currents of up to 600 A (typical).

The SIC1182K is suitable for several key industrial applications, including general purpose and servo drives, UPS, PV, welding inverters and power supplies.

Additional key features of the SIC1182K include:

  • Advanced active clamping
  • UVLO primary and secondary side
  • Over-current fault turn-off
  • Short-circuit current fault turn-off
  • Rail-to-rail stabilized output voltage
  • Unipolar supply voltage for secondary side
  • Suitable for 600 V / 650 V / 1200 V SiC MOSFET switches
  • Up to 150 kHz switching frequency
  • Propagation delay jitter ±5 ns
  • -40 °C to +125 °C operating ambient temperature
  • High common-mode transient immunity
  • eSOP package with 9.5 mm creepage and clearance
