Fairchild Semiconductor's Automotive Qualified High-Speed, Low-Side Driver Family Increases Efficiency, Simplifies Design

Family Provides 1A to 9A Devices with Flexible Options to Fit Every Design

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Automotive applications using power MOSFETs require gate drivers with high peak drive current and low output impedance. The FAN31xx_F085 and FAN32xx_F085 series of high-speed, low-side automotive qualified gate drivers from Fairchild Semiconductor offer flexibility for power supply and other high-efficiency MOSFET switching applications, providing a wide selection of feature and performance combinations to create compact, highly efficient and reliable designs.

These AEC-Q100 qualified drivers are available in an SO8 package with a choice of TTL or CMOS input thresholds. This ensures the best possible design compatibility. The drivers have two inputs for each channel (either Dual-input (+ and - logic), Inverting and Enable, or Non-inverting and Enable) offering design flexibility.

Key Features:

  • Qualified to AEC-Q100 requirements (shown by flow code "_F085")
  • Compound MillerDrive™ architecture for strong gate drive
  • Short and well-controlled time delays (<20ns propagation delays for >1MHz switching) allows paralleling drivers, and optimizing drive timing to maximize efficiency
  • Fail-safe inputs: output held low if no input signal is present
  • 20V Abs max >4kV ESD and >500mA reverse current
  • -40 to +125 degrees C ambient operating temperature range
