ON Semiconductor's high-power industrial applications such as solar power inverters, motor drives, and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) demand a gate driver optocoupler with high performance and critical protection features. The FOD8316 optocoupler offers the critical protection necessary for preventing fault conditions that lead to destructive thermal runaways of IGBTs. This product family is comprised of high-speed isolated feedback for fault sensing and is ideally suited for driving fast-switching power IGBTs and MOSFETs. The device consists of an integrated gate drive optocoupler featuring low RDS(ON) CMOS transistors to drive the IGBT from rail-to-rail.
