High Speed Synchronus N-Channel MOFSET Driver
IC GATE DRVR HALF-BRIDGE 8DFN
Half-Bridge Gate Driver IC Non-Inverting 8-DFN (2×3)
The LTC®4449 is a high frequency gate driver that is designed to drive two N-Channel MOSFETs in a synchronous DC/DC converter. The powerful rail-to-rail driver capability reduces switching losses in MOSFETs with high gate capacitance. The LTC4449 features a separate supply for the input logic to match the signal swing of the controller IC. If the input signal is not being driven, the LTC4449 activates a shutdown mode that turns off both external MOSFETs. The input logic signal is internally level-shifted to the bootstrapped supply, which functions at up to 42V above ground. The LTC4449 contains under-voltage lockout circuits on both the driver and logic supplies that turn off the external MOSFETs when an under-voltage condition is present. An adaptive shoot-through protection feature is also built-in to prevent the power loss resulting from MOSFET cross-conduction current.
