Charged EVs | Energy Integrations introduces new line of gate-driver boards


Built-in circuit maker Energy Integrations has launched a brand new line of gate-driver boards designed for electrical buses and vehicles in addition to electrical development and agricultural tools.

The SCALE EV gate-driver boards are rated at 1,200 V for 400 V and 800 V methods. Every is composed of two strengthened gate-drive channels, related energy provides and monitoring telemetry. 

The primary product within the line is the 2SP0215F2Q0C, which is designed for the EconoDUAL 900 A, 1,200 V IGBT and half-bridge module. Samples can be found now.

Housed in an ASIC bundle, SCALE EV gate-driver boards embrace 11.4 mm of creepage and clearance, and microcontroller enter and output traces which might be related by means of two impartial on-board connectors.

SCALE EV merchandise are ASIL B and C licensed. 

“Gate-driver design is crucial to each the efficiency and reliability of electrical automobiles,” mentioned Director of Automotive Enterprise Improvement Peter Vaughan. “By providing a product [for which] the event, testing and qualification, plus ASIL certification, have already been performed, we’re dramatically lowering improvement time and price.”

The SCALE EV merchandise help SiC MOSFETS and silicon IGBTs, and embrace many protections, together with lively short-circuit, lively discharge of the related DC-link capacitor, overvoltage limitation by means of lively gate management, gate monitoring, sign transmission monitoring, on-chip temperature monitoring and short-circuit and overcurrent responses which might be lower than one microsecond for SiC MOSFETS and fewer than three microseconds for IGBTs.

The corporate says a full manufacturing of the primary product within the line will likely be launched within the fourth quarter of 2022.
