Product Overview

BG2A-NF is a universal gate drive prototype board. BG2A is a fully isolated two channel gate drive circuit designed for use with dual IGBT modules. The BG2A utilizes VLA500-01 hybrid gate drivers to provide efficient switching of modules rated up to 1400A. The hybrid gate drivers also provide protection against unexpected short circuit conditions using desaturation detection. The VLA500-01 hybrid gate drivers have an integrated DC to DC converter with 2500VRMS isolation to provide isolated gate drive power. Control signals are isolated using high speed opto couplers with 15KV/uS common mode noise immunity. The BG2A provides an isolated fault feedback signal if a short circuit condition is detected.
  • Built in isolated DC to DC converter for gate drive
  • SIP outline allows more space on mounting area
  • Built in short circuit protection (with fault output)
  • Variable fall time on short circuit protection
  • Electrical isolation voltage between input and output (2500Vrms for 1min)
  • TTL compatible input
