SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Power Integrations (Nasdaq:POWI), the leader in IGBT and MOSFET driver technology for medium- and high-voltage inverter applications, today announced an expansion of its SCALE-iDriver™ family of galvanically isolated single-channel gate driver ICs. The new devices support IGBT blocking voltages up to 1700 V, which are generally used in 400 VAC and 690 VAC line applications. They are also ideal for the latest three-level topology photovoltaic inverters and for photovoltaic arrays leveraging the new 1500 V DC bus standard. The expanded 1700 V SCALE-iDriver family allows OEMs to use the same highly integrated, safe and reliable driver technology across a range of solutions.
