IR introduces IRS44273L compact low-side gate drive IC in SOT-23-5L package

International Rectifier has introduced the IRS44273L, a low-side gate drive IC offering high drive capability in a highly compact SOT-23-5L package. Easy to use, the device provides a simple solution for IGBT and MOSFET gate drives, offering 1.5A (typical) sink and source capability, fast switching performance and integrated under-voltage lockout protection with minimal board space requirements.

This new device offers functionality previously only available in larger packages such as an SO-8 enabling more compact and economical system design.

Offering the highest available drive current for a low-side driver in an SOT-23-5L package enables designers to use this new IC in place of larger SO-8 devices to significantly reduce solution size.

The IRS44273L has two output pins on either side of the package to simplify system design by offering layout flexibility. The device has non-inverted inputs and is compatible with CMOS and LSTTL controllers.
