AHV85111 Isolated Gate Driver With Bipolar Output Power-Thru IC

June 4, 2024
Allegro MicroSystems' AHV85111 isolated gate-driver IC offers critical safety features and a simplified design for high-power energy conversion systems for e-mobility and clean energy applications.

Part of Allegro's High Voltage Power portfolio, the AHV85111 isolated gate-driver IC offers critical safety features with a simplified design of high-power energy conversion systems for e-Mobility and clean energy applications, including OBC/DCDC, solar inverter, and datacenter power supply.

The AHV85111 gate driver adds bipolar output that eliminates the need to design a complicated negative isolated DC power supply and removes unnecessary external components. It also protects against high operating temperatures in electric powertrain systems, as well as reactions to noisy environments that may be present in microinverters in solar applications, power supply in data center applications, or onboard chargers for electric vehicles.

It includes 10x lower common-mode capacitance, a 50% smaller footprint, 10x noise reduction, and a 50% efficiency improvement compared to competitor offerings, while also providing overtemperature protection.
