Toshiba's TLP5832 gate drive optocoupler can deliver 2.5A peak output current from the SO8L package, only 2.3mm high and about 50% lower than the company's existing SDIP6 and DIP8 packages.
“In spite of its small size, the IC offers a 5,000Vrms isolation voltage (BVS) and guarantees a creepage distance and a minimum gap distance of 8.0mm, making it suitable for applications requiring high insulation performance, including safety-critical designs. .
The 2.5A peak, but high and low, makes it possible to drive medium-sized IGBTs and mosfets in industrial, air conditioning and solar applications as well as inverters in servo amplifiers.
Toshiba claims that the propagation delay is 200ns and the propagation delay deviation is ±80ns, which can be guaranteed over the entire operating range (-40°C to +110°C) - allowing to reduce the temperature-related design margin in the inverter.
