Automotive multi-channel smart half-bridge gate drivers evaluation module
This product has been released to the market and is available for purchase. For some products, newer alternatives may be available.
DRV8718S-Q1EVM is a prototype evaluation module and is available in limited quantities.
The DRV8718S-Q1 evaluation module (EVM) allows easy evaluation of the DRV8718S-Q1 device.
The DRV8718S-Q1 is 8-channel Gate Driver with inline current sensing and offline diagnostics. The DRV8718S-Q1 devices can be powered with a supply voltage from 4.9 to 37 V. A smart gate drive architecture optimizes dead time to prevent shoot-through conditions, controls slew rate. Four PWM inputs can be multiplexed between the different drivers in combination with SPI control. The current sensing amplifier can be used in low-side or high-side sense configurations. A simple SPI and Hardware interface are available.
