Dual 5A Compound Gate Driver

Dual 5A Compound Gate Driver - SM72482


The SM72482 Dual Gate Driver replaces industry standard gate drivers with improved peak output current and efficiency. Each “compound” output driver stage includes MOS and bipolar transistors operating in parallel that together sink more than 5A peak from capacitive loads. Combining the unique characteristics of MOS and bipolar devices reduces drive current variation with voltage and temperature. Under-voltage lockout protection is also provided. The drivers can be operated in parallel with inputs and outputs connected to double the drive current capability. This device is available in the SOIC package.
