Dead-time programming sets the delay between GATE and GAT2 to prevent overlap of MOSFET ON times as shown in Figure 1. GAT2 turns the second MOSFET off when it transitions high. Both MOSFETs should be off between GAT2 going high to GATE going high, and GATE going low to GAT2 going low. The maximum GATE ON time is reduced by the programmed dead-time period. The dead time period is specified with 1 nF of capacitance on GATE and GAT2. Different loading on these pins changes the effective dead time.
A resistor connected from DT to ARTN sets the delay between GATE and GAT2 per Equation 3.
Connect DT to VB to set the dead time to 0 and turn GAT2 off.
