International Rectifier (IR), a leader in power management semiconductor technology, has introduced a series of 200V ICs for low- and mid-voltage motor drive applications including power tools, low-voltage servo drives, electric garden equipment and electric vehicles such as cranes, golf carts and scooters.
The IRS200x family of half-bridge, high-side and low-side driver ICs is tailored for low-voltage (24V, 36V and 48V) and mid-voltage (60V, 80V and 100V) motor drive applications including both three-phase inverter and half-bridge.
Under-voltage lockout (UVLO) protection is a standard feature provided across the family while the IRS2003 and IRS2004 also include deadtime protection. In addition, the IRS2004 features a shutdown input pin.
These new 200V ICs feature low quiescent current that enables a low-cost bootstrap power supply for the high-side circuitry, eliminating the need for large and expensive auxiliary power supplies that discrete optocoupler- or transformer-based designs typically require, making them well suited for low-voltage applications that require a small footprint.
The IRS200x devices are provided in eight-pin SOIC and DIP packages and feature gate voltage (Vout) up to 20V, typical turn-on current (Io+) of 290 mA, typical turn-off (Io-) current of 600 mA, and accept input logic levels of 3.3V, 5V and 15V.
The new 200V devices utilise IR’s advanced high-voltage IC process which incorporates next-generation high-voltage level-shifting and termination technology to deliver superior electrical over-stress protection and higher field reliability
The series of 200V ICs are available from Avnet Electronics Marketing.
