New Series of High-Side/Low-Side Gate Drivers from Diodes Incorporated Delivers Higher Performance in an SO-8 Package

PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and
supplier of high-quality, application specific standard products within
the broad discrete, logic, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor
markets, today announced a new family of high-voltage, high-speed gate
drivers for converters, inverters, motor control, and Class-D power
amplifier applications. These devices are suitable for motor drive
applications up to 100V, and simultaneously able to support power
conversion and inversion applications operating at 200V. These features
make them well-suited for a number of consumer and industrial designs,
including power tools, robotics and drones, as well as small electric
vehicles.

The DGD2003S8, DGD2005S8, and DGD2012S8 are 200V gate drivers covering
half-bridge and high-side/low-side topologies, offered in the standard
low-profile SO-8 package. These devices feature junction isolated
level-shift technology to create a floating channel high-side driver for
use in a bootstrap topology operating at up to 200V, with the ability to
drive two N-channel MOSFETs in a half-bridge configuration.

All devices in the series feature standard TTL/CMOS logic inputs with
Schmitt triggering and are able to operate down to 3.3V, making it
simple to interface the drivers to control circuitry. The outputs are
designed to withstand negative transients and include undervoltage
lock-out for high-side and low-side drivers.

With a source and sink current of 290mA and 600mA, respectively for the
DGD2003S8 and DGD2005S8, and 1.9A and 2.3A, respectively for the
DGD2012S8, power efficiency is maintained across the range. The
DGD2003S8 features a fixed internal deadtime of 420ns, while the
DGD2005S8 has a maximum propagation time of 30ns when switching between
high-side and low-side.

The DGD2003S8, DGD2005S8 and DGD2012S8 are available in the SO-8 package
and operate across an extended temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
