IXYS Introduces the IXRFDSM607X2 15A RF MOSFET Driver for High Frequency Applications

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Nov. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS), a leader in power semiconductors, mixed-signal and digital ICs for power conversion and motion control applications, announced today the introduction of the IXRFDSM607X2 15 Ampere Low-Side RF MOSFET Driver by its IXYS Colorado division.

The IXRFDSM607X2 is a dual CMOS high-speed, high-current gate driver specifically designed to drive MOSFETs in Class D and E HF RF applications as well as other applications requiring ultrafast rise and fall times or short minimum pulse widths. The IXRFDSM607X2 can source and sink 7 Amperes of peak current per driver, 15 Amperes when combined, while producing voltage rise and fall times and minimum pulse widths of less than 10 nanoseconds.

The inputs of the driver are compatible with TTL or CMOS and are fully immune to latch up over the entire operating range. Designed with small internal delays, cross conduction or current shoot-through is virtually eliminated.

The IXRFDSM607X2 is provided in a surface mount package incorporating advanced layout techniques to minimize stray lead inductances for optimum switching performance. Thermal strain relief is provided by way of the gull wing lead-frame, which eliminates post reflow lead-forming operations and lends itself to automated assembly techniques. The input and output pins can be separated or combined for dual or single driver operation.

Features:

  • High Peak Output Current
  • Low Output Impedance
  • Low Propagation Delay
  • High Capacitive Load Drive Capability
  • Wide Operating Voltage Range
  • Single or Dual Driver Operation Capable
  • Automated Assembly Capable

Applications:

  • MOSFET Drivers
  • Class D and E RF Generators
  • Multi-MHz Switch Mode Power Supplies
  • Pulse Transformer Drivers
  • Pulse Laser Diode Drivers
  • High Speed Pulse Generators

“The IXRFDSM607X2 driver is an important addition to IXYS Colorado’s growing family of components for high speed power system design addressing not only performance needs but also providing high power components designed for automated assembly,” commented Stephen Krausse, General Manager of IXYS Colorado. “The features and wide safety margin in operating voltage and power make the IXRFDSM607X2 unmatched in performance and value.”

The IXRFDSM607X2 is available directly from IXYS Colorado Tel. (970) 493-1901, Fax (970) 232-3025, Email sales@ixyscolorado.com, http://www.ixysrf.com or through your local authorized IXYS/IXYSRF sales representative.
