Title:
Universal Power MOSFET Interface IC (TC4420/9)
Name:
AN798
Date:

Description:
The TC4420/4429 are 6A high-speed MOSFET drivers available in an 8-pin SOIC package, 8-pin CerDIP and PDIP packages, and a 5-pin TO-220 package. These parts have additional improvements over the TC429 driver. Added features are 4kV of ESD protection, latch-up protection of >1.5A of reverse output current, and logic inputs that can withstand up to 5V negative swings. Although designed as a power MOSFET driver, it can act as a level shifter, comparator, waveshaper and pulse transformer driver, to mention a few of its possible uses.
