MUNICH, JUNE 2021
Modern industrial automation solutions, energy systems and professional equipment are often extremely specialized devices that require high safety and design flexibility for switching elements like semiconductor relays. A photovoltaic driver for galvanic separation in combination with a distinct MOSFET power switch leaves nothing to be desired.
The new APV models of Panasonic Industry’s Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers can control MOSFETS in a new range by offering high-output voltage or high-output current.
The Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers come in a miniaturized SSOP housing and provide a galvanic separation of 1,500V between the control circuit and the power output circuit. The new high-power type APV3111GVY directly switches Power MOSFETs for high-load currents, thanks to a generated output voltage of 18V used for controlling the MOSFETs Gates, a feature that reduces the number of amplifier parts on the PCB.
APV1111GVY comes into play in the context of high-speed switching with high-current requirements – and stands out with a remarkable output current of 45μA for fast MOSFET Gate charging.
It is a straightforward driver principle, one that is ready for efficient and miniaturized next-gen high-power applications in a wide range of temperatures, including power supply devices, measuring equipment, energy storage systems and much more.
