BD16950EFV-C - Documentation

The BD16950EFV is an AEC-Q100 automotive qualified 2-channel Half-Bridge Gate Driver, controlled by an external MCU through a 16-bit Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). Independent control of low-side and high-side N-MOSFETS allows for several MCU controlled modes. A programmable drive current is available to adjust slew-rates, in order to meet EMI and power dissipation requirements. Diagnostics can be read and reset by an external MCU.
