This paper explains the gate drive requirements for Infineon’s CoolGaN™ 600 V e-mode HEMTs. Various driving solutions are discussed, ranging from the standard RC-coupled driver to a new differential drive concept utilizing dedicated gate driver ICs. In half-bridge topologies, a hybrid configuration combining isolated and non-isolated drivers could be an exciting alternative. Practical application examples and circuit schematics complement the paper.
This application note serves as a programming starting guide and will focus on the setup and communication of the XENSIV™ PAS CO2 sensor driven by a microcontroller. The main focus will be the I2C functionality along with a quick example of how to set up communication and start basic measurement using the Cypress PSoC® 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit and the Arduino Due.
