The UCC2753x family of devices are single-channel, high-speed, gate drivers capable of effectively driving MOSFET and IGBT power switches by up to 2.5-A source and 5-A sink (asymmetrical drive) peak current. Strong sink capability in asymmetrical drive boosts immunity against parasitic Miller turn-on effect. The UCC2753x device can also feature a split-output configuration where the gate-drive current is sourced through the OUTH pin and sunk through the OUTL pin. This pin arrangement allows the user to apply independent turn-on and turn-off resistors to the OUTH and OUTL pins, respectively, and easily control the switching slew rates.
The driver has rail-to-rail drive capability and extremely small propagation delay, typically 17 ns.
The input threshold of UCC2753x is based on TTL and CMOS compatible low-voltage logic, which is fixed and independent of VDD supply voltage. The 1-V typical hysteresis offers excellent noise immunity.
The driver has an EN pin with fixed TTL compatible threshold. EN is internally pulled up; pulling EN low disables the driver, while leaving EN open provides normal operation. The EN pin can be used as an additional input with the same performance as the IN, IN+, IN1, and IN2 pins.
