FEBFOD8316-GEVB: 2.5 A Output Current, IGBT Drive Optocoupler with Desaturation Detection and Isolated Fault Sensing

The FEBFOD8316-GEVB smart gate driver optocoupler, an advanced 2.5 A output current IGBT drive optocoupler, offers the critical protection necessary for preventing fault conditions that lead to destructive thermal runaway of IGBTs. Pin-for- pin compatible with current solutions, the FOD8316 consists of an integrated gate drive optocoupler featuring low RDS(ON) CMOS transistors to drive the IGBT from rail-to-rail and high-speed isolated feedback circuitry for fault sensing. It is ideally suited for driving fast-switching power IGBTs and MOSFETs. The FEBFOD8316-GEVB offers best-in-class noise immunity, resulting from its proprietary Optoplanar® coplanar packaging technology. The optoplanar technology ensures safe insulation thickness of more than 0.4 millimeters in attaining reliable high-voltage isolation, certified by UL1577 and DIN EN/IEC60747-5-5 standards.
