The HIP2211EVAL3Z and HIP2211EVAL2Z boards are designed to provide a quick and comprehensive method for evaluating the HIP2211 100V, 3A source, 4A sink, high-frequency half-bridge driver for driving the gates of two N-channel MOSFETs in a half-bridge configuration. Two N-channel MOSFETs (with dual footprint supporting multiple packages such as TO220 and DPAK) and an inductor-capacitor LC filter are included on the evaluation boards to allow for the evaluation of a half-bridge driven load such as a synchronous buck switching regulator.
The HIP2211 half-bridge driver is offered in an 8 Ld SOIC, 8 Ld DFN or 10 Ld DFN package (with enhanced thermal EPAD). The HIP2211EVAL3Z evaluation board is designed for the 10 Ld DFN package. The 8 Ld DFN package can fit on this board as well. The HIP2211EVAL2Z evaluation board is designed for the 8 Ld SOIC package. Both boards operate from a supply voltage of 6V to 18V DC with the capability of driving both the high-side and the low-side MOSFETs in a 100V half-bridge configuration.
