150V High Side N-Channel MOSFET Driver Provides 100% Duty Cycle Capability

The LTC7001 high speed, high side N-channel MOSFET driver operates up to a 150V supply voltage while its internal charge pump fully enhances an external N-channel MOSFET switch, enabling it to remain on indefinitely. The LTC7001’s 1Ω gate driver can drive large gate capacitance MOSFETs with short transition times and 35-ns propagation delays.

 

The LTC7001 is designed to receive a ground-referenced, low voltage digital input signal and quickly drive a high side N-channel power MOSFET whose drain can be between 0V and 135V (150V abs max). The LTC7001 operates from a 3.5V to 15V driver bias supply range with an adjustable undervoltage lockout. The fast 13ns rise and fall times, when driving a 1000pF load, minimize switching losses. Other features include an adjustable turn-on slew rate and an adjustable overvoltage lockout.
