Featured technologies

Introduction to smart gate drive

Smart gate drivers integrate passive components to reduce board size, design complexity and cost. The protection and configurability offered by smart gate drive improves design simplicity and brings a new level of intelligence to motor systems.  

Key benefits:

  • Reduce system cost: Integrate up to 24 external components typically used in standard gate drivers to reduce PCB size.
  • Reliable protection: Built-in MOSFET drain-source and gate-source fault detection to prevent false FET turnon caused by coupling.
  • Ease of use: Simplify design with integrated automatic dead-time and programmable gate drive current to optimize EMI.
