The ISO5451 is a 5.7-kVRMS, reinforced isolated gate driver for IGBTs and MOSFETs with 2.5-A source and 5-A sink current. The input side operates from a single 3-V to 5.5-V supply. The output side allows for a supply range from minimum 15 V to maximum 30 V. Two complementary CMOS inputs control the output state of the gate driver. The short propagation time of 76 ns assures accurate control of the output stage. An internal desaturation (DESAT) fault detection recognizes when the IGBT is in an overload condition. Upon a DESAT detect, the gate driver output is driven low to VEE2 potential, turning the IGBT immediately off.
