Driving SiC & GaN Power Switches with Broadcom Gate Drive Optocouplers

The ACPL-355JC is a 10 A gate drive optocoupler device with an integrated fail-safe IGBT and SiC MOSFET diagnostics, protection and fault reporting. The device features common mode transient immunity (CMTI) greater than 100 kV/μs and provides minimal propagation delay with excellent timing skew. The high peak output current and wide operating voltage range eliminate the need of an output buffer circuit, enabling designers to implement cost-effective gate driver solutions for motor drives and power inverters.
