Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. has announced the launch of its new Power-Thru isolated gate driver AHV85110 that drives GaN FETs with up to a 50% smaller footprint and a 40% efficiency improvement compared to competitor offerings. This driver has fast propagation delay and high peak source/ sink capability to efficiently drive GaNFETs in high-frequency designs. High CMTI combined with isolated outputs for both bias power and drive make it ideal in applications requiring isolation, level-shifting, or ground separation for noise immunity.


An isolated output bias supply is integrated into the driver device, eliminating the need for any external gate drive auxiliary bias supply or high-side bootstrap. This greatly simplifies the system design and reduces EMI through reduced total common-mode (CM) capacitance. It also allows the driving of a floating switch in any location in a switching power topology.
