Area and Volume
Typically an isolated gate driver device requires a separate isolated supply. This is either an off-the-shelf module or a custom isolated supply designed into the power converter. With Heyday's isolated driver you don't need a separate isolated supply. Our driver does that for you. This means lower BOM count, less PCB area and improves the robustness and EMI performance of your converter.
Both the ON and OFF propagation times are very short (25ns typ). This makes dead-time management between switch cycles easy to manage and helps to maximize the efficiency of the power converter.
Would you like to drive your switch ON or OFF for a long time without having to worry about recycling energy into a bootstrap capacitor? With the Heyday isolated drivers that's taken care of for you. Infinite ON and OFF time capability comes as standard.
This enables the system designer to freely choose a resistor value for turn ON (pull-up) and turn OFF (pull-down).
Reduce your module weight by eliminating that custom isolated supply and all the components that entails:
