Supporting Information



BD2311NVX-LB is optimized for GaN devices and achieves gate drive speeds on the order of nanoseconds (ns) - ideal for high-speed GaN switching. This was facilitated through a deep understanding of GaN technology and the continuing pursuit of gate driver performance. The result: fast switching with a minimum gate input pulse width of 1.25ns that contributes to smaller, more energy efficient, higher performance applications.

As GaN devices are sensitive towards gate input overvoltage, ROHM has developed a unique method to suppress the gate voltage overshoots and has implemented it into this driver. On top, the optimum GaN device can be selected by adjusting the gate resistance based on application requirements. ROHM also offers a lineup of GaN devices under the EcoGaN™ name - contributing to a sustainable society through power solutions when combined with gate driver ICs that maximize their performance. The gate driver BD2311NVX-LB with the unique gate overvoltage suppression feature - when used with ROHM's EcoGaN™ products - further simplifies the design and enhances application reliability.
