Driver Power Dissipation Considerations

This whitepaper discusses the power dissipation of gate drivers. All isolated gate drivers have a maximum thermal limit, Tjmax, beyond which the devices could be damaged and, in some cases, cause safety hazards. It is important to review the total power dissipation of the driver’s package to make sure that the device’s maximum junction temperature is not exceeded while operating within the desired temperature range.
