Smart Gate Driver Photocoupler Features Improved Desaturation Sensing Function

The TLP5214A smart gate driver photocoupler delivers 4A of output current and is designed for use in driving medium-power IGBTs and power MOSFETs. By suppressing short-time pulse noise during switching and desaturation sensing, the device promises safer operation. It comes in a wide-creepage-distance SO16L package and incorporates smart features such as desaturation leading edge blanking time, desaturation filter time, and optimization of soft turn-off performance. The TLP5214A also provides output fault status feedback, making it suitable for applications including industrial inverters, solar energy inverters, servo amplifiers, and air conditioner inverters.
