The 2SC0635T is the first commercially-available dual-channel IGBT gate driver core for 4.5 kV IGBT with electrical interface and integrated DC/DC converter. This gate driver unit provides functional isolation according to IEC 61800-5-1 and UL-347 and is a cost effective and reliable alternative to more expensive fiber-optic solutions. The core functionality integrates essential control and protection features while maintaining full design flexibility with regard to protection, interfacing and the partitioning of the power inverter. Targeted at applications including medium voltage inverters for traction and industrial applications.
4.5 kV driver core with on-board power supply and no fiber optics achieves lower system cost.
