Renesas Electronics Corporation introduced the HIP2211 and HIP2210, a new pair of 100V half-bridge MOSFET drivers. The HIP2211 is a next-generation pin-compatible upgrade to Renesas’ popular ISL2111 bridge driver, while the new HIP2210 offers a tri-level PWM input to simplify power supply and motor drive design. The HIP2211 and HIP2210 are ideal for 48V telecom power supplies, Class-D audio amplifiers, solar inverters, and UPS inverters. They are also rugged enough to power the demanding 48V motor drives found in Li-ion battery-powered household and outdoor products, water pumps, and cooling fans.
The HIP221x drivers are designed to work reliably under difficult operating conditions, with the high-speed, high-voltage HS pin tolerating up to -10V continuously and slewing as quickly as 50V/ns (more info).
