ST offers the STGAP series of isolated MOSFET and IGBT gate drivers that provide galvanic isolation between the input section, which connects to the control part of the system, and the MOSFET or IGBT being driven. Galvanic isolation is attained using a high-voltage, on-chip, micro transformer that ensures commands and diagnostic information are reliably transferred to and from the floating – with respect to ground – section of the circuit.
STGAP isolated drivers are extremely flexible as they provide a large number of parameters that can be adjusted to best match the selected MOSFET or IGBT and system requirements. They also provide extensive diagnostic features to help enhance system robustness and reliability. Evaluation hardware, software and technical documentation are available to help minimize time to market.
The STSPIN220 stepper motor driver, STSPIN230 brushless DC motor driver, STSPIN240 dual brushed DC motor driver and STSPIN250 single brushed DC motor driver are optimized to deliver low noise, minimal power consumption and standby mode of operation along with features such as extreme position accuracy and motion smoothness with up to 256 micro-steps per step.
