Create Your Perfect Gate Driver

If you are designing a state-of-the-art power electronics system for railway, solar, wind or power transmission applications, you need reliable gate drivers. Power Integrations produces over a million plug-and-play gate driver boards each year, and we can develop the perfect gate driver just for you.

Our standard products are optimized for a wide selection of high-power and high-voltage IGBT and SiC modules, but the possibilities don’t end there. We provide fast-to-market customization services, from Adaptation to Full Customization. Contact us today to get started.

Adaptation

Numerous features of our standard products can be modified. Our knowledgeable systems engineering team will identify the modifications needed and help you start the adaptation process.

For example, our 1SP0351 plug-and-play gate drivers are optimized for 4500 V Press-Pack IGBT power modules. The gate resistors, connectors, the Dynamic Advanced Active Clamping circuit and more can be customized to create the perfect fit for you.

Full Customization

If your needs go beyond adapting an existing product, we can craft a one-of-a-kind solution for you in accordance with IEC, EN and other standards. We will support you at every step of the process:

Feasibility Study - We work with you to draft a viable solution based on your requirements.

Development - Our product development team creates the electrical and mechanical designs. We offer joint design reviews and prototyping support.

Qualification - We provide expert guidance to assist you in qualifying the solution quickly and efficiently.

Production - Finally, your customized products are produced using our certified production processes. Optional burn-in and conformal coating services are available.
