The LTC7004’s 1Ω gate driver can drive large-gate-capacitance MOSFETs with very short transition times and 35 nsec propagation delays, for both high frequency switching and static switch applications.
The LTC7004 is designed to receive a ground-referenced, low voltage digital input signal and drive a high side N-channel power MOSFET whose drain can be between 0V and 60V (65V abs. max.). The LTC7004 operates from a 3.5V to 15V driver bias supply range with an adjustable undervoltage lockout. The 13nsec rise and fall times, when driving a 1,000 pF load, minimize switching losses. Other features include an adjustable turn-on slew rate and an adjustable overvoltage lockout.
The LTC7004 is available in the MSOP-10 package with pins configured for high voltage spacing. It is available in three operating junction temperature ranges of extended and industrial versions from –40°C to 125°C, a high temperature automotive version from –40°C to 150°C and a military grade from –55°C to 150°C, priced starting at $2.05 (1000).
