The FAN7383 is a half-bridge gate-drive IC with shutdown and programmable dead-time control functions for driving MOSFETs and IGBTs that operate up to +600V. Fairchild’s high voltage process and common-mode noise canceling technique give stable operation of highside drivers under high-dv/dt noise circumstances. An advanced level-shift circuit allows high-side gate driver operation up to VS= -9.8V (typical) for VBS=15V. The UVLO circuits for both channels prevent malfunction when VDD and VBS are lower than the specified threshold voltage. Output drivers typically source/sink 350mA/650mA, respectively, which is suitable for all kinds of half and full bridge inverter.
