VOW3120 PDF – Widebody 2.5 A IGBT and MOSFET Driver

Part Number: VOW3120

Function: Widebody 2.5 A IGBT and MOSFET Driver / Icc= 2.5 mA maximum supply current

Package: DIP, SO 8 Pin Type

Manufacturer: Vishay Semiconductors


VOW3120 datasheet



The VOW3120 consists of an infrared light emitting diode optically coupled to an integrated circuit with a power output stage.

This optocoupler is ideally suited for driving power IGBTs and MOSFETs used in motor control and inverter applications. The high operating voltage range of the output stage provides the drive voltages required by gate controlled devices.

The voltage and current supplied by this optocoupler makes it ideallysuited for directly driving
IGBTs with ratings up to 1200 V/100 A. For IGBTs with higher ratings, the VOW3120 can be used to drive a discrete power stage which drives the IGBT gate.
