IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc. Key Developments

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Offers Automotive Grade 14A Gate Driver Integrated Circuits

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced that the IXD_614SI family has been added to the growing number of IXYS ICD low side gate driver integrated circuits that are AEC Q100 (automotive-grade) qualified. With both outputs and inputs rated to 35V, the IXD_614SI family is well suited for automotive applications. IXD_614SI outputs are capable of sourcing and sinking 14A of peak current with rise and fall times of less than 25ns. The IXD_614SI family has an AEC Q100 Grade 1 -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C ambient operating temperature range. These gate drivers are extremely robust, capable of withstanding negative voltage spikes of greater than 5V on the inputs, and are virtually immune to latch-up. The IXD_614SI devices are available in the thermally enhanced 8-lead power SOIC package. The IXDD614SI is configured as an inverting driver with an enable, the IXDI614SI is configured as an inverting driver, and the IXDN614SI is configured as a non-inverting driver. The IXD_614SI drivers' 14A/35V power output makes them well suited for driving high current IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs. Typical automotive applications include switched-mode power supplies used in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, motor drives and traction inverters. IXYS ICD also offers lower current AEC Q100 qualified low side gate drivers. The IXD_609SI is a single 9A gate driver, and the IXD_604SI is a dual 4A gate driver.

IXYS Introduces High Voltage, High Frequency Dual Analog Switch for Industrial Applications

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of IXYS Corporation, announced the introduction of the CPC7512, a dual shunt-isolated 1-form-A high voltage, high frequency analog switch that builds upon IXYS Integrated Circuits Division's design and fabrication expertise for industrial applications. This monolithic solid state device provides the switching functionality of two normally open (1-Form-A) solid state relays (SSRs) for high frequency applications in a small economical package. Both switches incorporate a T-switch compensation technique to provide 60dB of off-isolation at 1MHz by minimizing open state capacitive coupling. Designed to provide flexible single ended or differential access to high voltage networks, the CPC7512 is configured as two independent switches with optimized state control. The self-biasing switches do not require external high voltage supplies for proper operation. A single 5V power supply provides sufficient biasing for enabling high voltage, bidirectional switching. An integrated thermal shutdown feature provides not only enhanced protection for devices connected to high voltage networks up to +/-320V, but also an external signal to indicate the device is in thermal shutdown. Applications for this highly reliable device include multiplexed ultrasonic transducer switching, battery monitoring and charging, automatic test equipment (ATE), instrumentation, industrial controls and monitoring. The versatile device may also be configured as a dual SPDT 1-Form-C switch by utilizing the shunt switch for driving two independent loads. The CPC7512 is offered in a 20-Pin SOIC package.

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), Inc. Announces Expansion of its Depletion-Mode MOSFET Family

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced the expansion of its depletion-mode MOSFET family, with voltage ratings from 60V to 800V, and low maximum Gate-to-Source threshold voltages from -2.9V to -3.9V, which means that with ‘zero’ gate voltage the devices are on. IXYS ICD N-channel depletion-mode MOSFETs utilize a proprietary third generation vertical DMOS process that realizes, high voltage performance in an economical silicon gate process. The vertical DMOS process yields a robust device with high input impedance for efficient power management applications that is normally on. These reliable MOSFET devices have been widely used in IXYS ICD’s extensive solid state relays that have been successfully deployed in demanding industrial, LED lighting, aerospace, consumer, automotive and telecommunications applications. These MOSFET devices are offered in SOT-89, SOT-223, and SOT-23 packages. Being ‘normally on,’ FETs enable these devices to conduct current without any gate voltage which makes them effective in power start up circuitry, in emergency lighting and backup power control applications, where gate power is lost. Furthermore, the unique characteristics of the devices enable them to be ideal current sources with the proper corresponding gate voltage bias, and even expand their function as dynamic current limiting devices. Typical applications include but are not limited to: voltage pre-regulator circuits, cold start voltage feed, current sources, constant current loads, LED drive circuits, IGBT speed enhancement, normally-on switches, ignition modules, converters and power supplies.
