App note: Avoiding MOSFET driver overstress
An application note from Microchip: Avoiding MOSFET driver overstress (PDF!)
This entry was posted in app notes and tagged microchip, MOSFET.
This application note describes how to avoid MOSFET
driver overstress. MOSFET drivers are used in many
applications to drive the high input capacitance of a
power MOSFET device. MOSFET drivers are very reliable when used within their operating specifications.
Care must be taken, however, to control supply line
transients and power dissipation, and prevent latch-up.
