Vishay announces a solid-state-relay, dual photovoltaic MOSFET driver that offers a high open-circuit voltage and short-circuit current combination. The VO1263AB is optimized for MOSFET and SCR gate-drive applications in end-products including isolated medical equipment, uninterruptible power supplies, consumer appliances, automated test equipment, switching equipment and industrial controls. The driver features an open circuit voltage up to 14.6 V typical, and a short-circuit current up to 42 A typical, the latter a 2.5x improvement over its Vishay predecessor, the LH1262CB. The high open circuit voltage allows designers to choose from a wide range of low-voltage MOSFETs; the higher short circuit current decreases the time required to charge the MOSFET’s gate.
