0.4 Amp Output Current IGBT Gate Drive Optocoupler

Currently Viewing:

The HCPL-3140/HCPL-0314 family of gate driver optocouplers consists of an GaAsP LED optically coupled to an integrated circuit with a power output stage. These optocouplers are ideally suited for driving power IGBTs and MOSFETs used in motor control inverter applications. The wide operating voltage range of the output stage provides the drive voltages required by gate controlled devices. The voltage and current supplied by this optocoupler makes it ideally suited for the direct driving of small or medium power IGBTs. For IGBTs with higher ratings, the HCPL-3150 (0.5 A) or HCPL-3120 (2.0 A) optocouplers can be used.
