The EL7242/EL7252 dual input, 2-channel drivers achieve the same excellent switching performance of the EL7212 family while providing added flexibility. The 2-input logic and configuration is applicable to numerous power MOSFET drive circuits. As with other Intersil drivers, the EL7242/EL7252 are excellent for driving large capacitive loads with minimal delay and switching times. Shoot-thru protection and latching circuits can be implemented by simply cross-coupling the 2-channels.
