Gate Driver Cuts IGBT Switching Losses

Operating with high-power switching IGBTs, the ZXGD3006E6 gate driver provides a drive current of 4A for an input current of 1 mA.  With an emitter-follower configuration, the device is inherently resistant to latch-up and shoot-through issues and delivers propagation delay times of less than 10 ns. Other features include a 40V operating range and +20V to -18V gate driving Pricing for the ZXGD3006E6 is $0.22 each/1,000. DIODES INC., Dallas, TX. (972) 385-2810.
