Gate Driver Solutions and Development Kits

Powerex provides a variety of gate drivers and accessory components to simplify your power semiconductor development. This includes:

  • Gate Drivers – Power amplifiers that take signal-level control input and create the desired gate drive output for power transistors. They provide optically isolated control signals to the power transistors which demand higher voltage and current than can be provided by a 5V logic control signal. Built-in desaturation protection is included on most types.
  • DC-DC Converters – On board power supplies that offer 15V and 24V isolated input and output DC voltage. Over current protection circuits are built in.
  • Plug & Play Drivers – Completely populated gate driver boards designed to drive specific modules or IGBT packages.
  • Prototype Development Kits – Complete gate drive circuits designed for use with IGBT models intended to shorten prototype build time, not for commercial production use.
