IX2204 (Data Sheet Rev. 3) The IX2204 is a dual high current gate driver specifically designed to drive the gates of high current
IGBTs. The IX2204 provides two high current outputs capable of sourcing 2A and sinking 4A. The outputs can be paralleled for IGBT gates that require higher drive current. The outputs have a wide operating voltage range, and are able to provide a negative gate
drive voltage to ensure the turn-off of high power IGBTs. A desaturation detection circuit protects the power IGBT during a short circuit. The IX2204 has a programmable two-level turn-off feature that protects the device against excessive voltages when the IGBT is being turned off due to an over-current situation.
The IX2204 has under voltage lockout circuitry and a fault status output, and is available in a 16-lead thermally enhanced SOIC package.
