TI introduces the industry's fastest isolated gate driver for high-voltage applications

” Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry’s fastest 5.7-kVRMS isolated dual-channel gate driver, the first of a new gate driver family in TI’s isolation portfolio. The UCC21520’s flexible, universal compatibility enables its use as an isolated driver in low-side, high-side, high-side/low-side or half-bridge power management designs. With its integrated components, advanced protection features and optimized switching performance, the UCC21520 enables designers to build smaller, more robust designs for enterprise, telecommunications, automotive and industrial applications. For more details, see www.ti.com/UCC21520-pr. Developed for high-voltage applications where system protection and reliability are critical, the UCC21520 provides reinforced isolation of 5.7 kVRMS and surge immunity tested up to 12.8 kV, along with common-mode transient immunity greater than 100 V/ns. By delivering the industry’s fastest propagation delay of 19 ns and the tightest channel-to-channel delay matching of less than 5 ns, the device enables high power density and efficiency, resulting in smaller solution size and reliable operation over end equipment lifetimes.”
