Analog Devices ADuM4122 Isolated Gate Drivers uses iCoupler® technology to provide precision isolation (5kVRMS) in a wide-body, 8-lead SOIC package. The ADuM4122 operates with an input supply voltage range from 3.3V to 6.5V, ensuring compatibility with lower voltage systems. Unlike gate drivers that employ high voltage level translation methodologies, the ADuM4122 offers true galvanic isolation between the input and the output regions. Additionally, the ADuM4122 provides reliable control over the switching characteristics of IGBT and MOSFET configurations over a wide range of switching voltages, allowing for simple slew rate control. » Learn More
