IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc. Key Developments

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division, Inc. Introduces Opto-Isolated Fast Gate Driver for Power MOSFETs and IGBTs

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc. announced the immediate availability of the IX3180 2.5A Gate Drive Optocoupler. The IX3180 combines IXYS ICD’s optocoupler expertise from its OptoMOS product line with its popular 600-Series high current gate drivers. The optocoupler input is a light-emitting diode which is then optically coupled to an integrated circuit containing a photo diode and high speed, high current, push-pull power output. The IX3180 output is capable of providing 2.5A of peak drive current, has a supply voltage range of 10V to 20V and is specified over a wide -40 degrees C to +100 degrees C temperature range. The IX3180 has a high speed response time (100nS typical propagation delay) and a 20nS typical pulse width distortion. Under-voltage lockout with hysteresis is provided for additional protection. The IX3180 is well suited for applications that need isolated drivers for fast switching power MOSFETs and IGBTs, such as DC/DC converters, industrial inverters, AC and brushless motor drives, inverters for solar cells and uninterruptible power supplies. The IX3180 is the latest addition to IXYS ICD’s growing family of high current gate drive optocouplers. The IX3180 high current gate drive optocoupler augments IXYS ICD’s extensive family of high current low side gate drivers (from 1.5A to 30A) and high voltage gate drivers (up to 700V). The IX3180 is available in an 8-lead DIP package and an 8-lead SOIC package.

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), Inc. Introduces NCD2100, New Non-Volatile Digital Programmable Capacitor

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced the availability of the NCD2100, non-volatile digital programmable capacitor. The NCD2100 is a dedicated electronic calibrator for capacitance critical circuits, a typical example of which is capacitive offset trimming of a crystal oscillator. Digitally controlled capacitance trimming information is communicated via a two-wire serial bus, with the calibration value stored in the internal, non-volatile memory. The NCD2100 has a tuning ratio of 5.7:1 and a capacitance range of 6.6 -- 37.55 pF in very small 63 femtofarad steps for shunt configuration. The device will retain the programmed capacitance value stored in its internal non-volatile memory, which becomes the ideal solution for trimming purposes. Restoring this memory to its initial factory default code is also possible so that future corrections are possible to manage system variations such as aging or re-tuning processes. Other features include very small size, minimum current draw, wide operating voltage range from 2.5V to 5.5V, and MSL 1 rating. The NCD2100 is available in the 2mm x 2mm DFN package and also in the 2.8mm x 2.9mm TSOT package. Typical applications include post-trim voltage-controlled oscillators (VCXOs), crystal oscillators, tunable RF Stages, RFID tags, industrial wireless control, filter banks and capacitive sensor trimming.

IXYS Introduces New 800V Optically Isolated AC Power Switch Utilizing Dual-Power SCR Outputs

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced the availability of the CPC1964B, an AC Solid State Switch utilizing dual power SCR outputs. This device also includes zero-cross turn-on circuitry and is specified with a blocking voltage of 800Vp. In addition, the tightly controlled zero-cross circuitry ensures low noise switching of AC loads by minimizing the generation of transients. The optically coupled input and output circuits provide 5000Vrms of isolation between the control and load circuits. As a result, the CPC1964B is well suited for industrial environments where electromagnetic interference would disrupt the operation of plant facility communication and control systems. The 8-Pin Power SOIC enables 800Vp of blocking voltage and 5kV of isolation; 12.5mm of external creepage distance can be achieved with the appropriate layout. The CPC1964B is approved to UL508 for General loads. The approval allows for operation at 1.5Arms on AC lines rated between 20Vrms to 280Vrms.
