The DGD0280 from Diodes Incorporated is a Single High-Speed Gate Driver that is ideal for DC-DC converters, line drivers, motor controls, and switched mode power supply (SMPS) applications. It requires an input voltage of 4.5 - 18 V. This gate driver consists of a control logic circuit, voltage/current detection blocks, MOSFET, and a low drop-out (LDO) voltage regulator. The logic inputs integrated into this driver are compatible with standard TTL and CMOS levels, thereby making it easy to interface with MCUs. It provides both fast and well-matched propagation delays that allow for high-speed operation, thereby enabling a smaller and more compact power-switching design using smaller associated components. This RoHS-compliant gate driver is equipped with under-voltage lockout (UVLO) protection and a thermal shutdown (TSD) circuit to prevent short-circuit-related damages. It is available in a surface-mount package that measures 2.90 x 2.80 mm.
