An Engineer in Wonderland – Hunt for a mosfet driver 2
Way back in November last year I was looking for a mosfet driver that would drive a top p-fet and a bottom n-fet so that I could run a half-bridge at 100% duty cycle.
Despite helpful replies from both Jeremy and Yilcan Guzelgunler, I got nowhere.
And so, heroically, gave up.
Now I am having another go, removing the 100% duty cycle requirement to make things a bit easier.
So two n-fets are now allowed on the output, as is a bootstrap circuit to power the top fet.
However, the logic end of the circuit has now only got a Li-ion cell to run from – so I am expecting to use mosfets with a low gate threshold – and the thing still has to operate from a bridge supply of between 4 and 20V.
Operating frequency will be somewhere in the 50kHz-1MHz range.
A pair of 2A mosfets inside the package as well would be icing on the cake.
