2SP0115T is a ultra-compact driver series for 17mm as EconoDUAL™ IGBT modules. As a member Power Integrations' plug-and-play driver family, it satisfies industry’s requirements for optimized electrical performance and noise immunity.
The highly integrated SCALE-2 chipset reduces the component count by 80% compared to conventional solutions, thus significantly increasing reliability and reducing cost.
The use of SCALE-2 technology also means that 2SP0115T devices are complete two-channel IGBT drivers equipped with DC/DC converters, short-circuit protection, Advanced Active Clamping and supply-voltage monitoring.
Users need only solder them onto the corresponding IGBT module. The system can then be put into immediate operation with no further development or matching engineering effort. This enables short design cycles to be realised without compromising overall system efficiency.
The embedded paralleling capability allows simple inverter design for higher power ratings.
Specifically adapted drivers are available for all module types. The DIC20 electrical interface is very simple and easy to use.
Driving Parallel-Connected IGBTs
The driver allows direct parallel connection of any number of 17mm modules with individual drivers. This new, pioneering concept makes it practical for the first time to build a converter series with discrete modules as well as parallel-connected IGBTs without any additional development effort.
Electrical Interface DIC20
The 2SP0115T driver series is equipped with DIC20 electrical interface and is fully compatible with the PrimePACK™ driver series 2SP0320T. The DIC20 electrical interface is very simple and easy to use.
The driver has the following terminals:
- Power supply and GND terminals
- 2 x drive signal inputs
- 2 x status outputs (failure returns)
- 1 x mode selection (half-bridge mode / direct mode)
- 1 x input to set the blocking time
All inputs are ESD-protected and all digital inputs have Schmitt-trigger characteristics. For more details, check the product documentation.
A version with extended operating temperature range of -40°C...85°C (2SP0115T2B0) can also be supplied.
