The project presented here is designed for high-voltage and high-speed driving for MOSFETS and IGBTs that operate up to +1200V. The project consists of a FAN73912 gate driver chip and 2 x IGBTs, DC bus capacitors, current sense resistor for current feedback etc. The advanced input filter of HIN provides protection against short-pulsed input signals caused by noise. An advanced level-shift circuit offers high-side gate driver operation up to VS=-9.8 V (typical) for VBS=15 V. The UVLO circuit prevents malfunction when VCC and VBS are lower than the specified threshold voltage. R8 is the current sense resistor.

We have tested this board with 1200V/40Amps NGTB40N120FL2WG IGBT. The user may install any other MOSFET or IGBT as per power requirements. The value of resistors R1, R2, R3, R5, and C3 (C4) will depend on MOSFET and IGBT selected. Refer to the datasheet of FAN73912 for more information. Choose DC bus Capacitor C6, C7, C8, C9 as per operating power supply. The FAN73912 Output drivers typically source and sink 2 A and 3 A, respectively. Resistors R4 and R6 are bleeding resistors. D4 power LED for VCC, header connector CN2 for signal inputs.

The bootstrap resistor, RBOOT, must be considered in sizing the bootstrap resistance and the current developed during the initial bootstrap charge. If the resistor is needed in series with the bootstrap diode, verify that VB does not fall below COM (ground). Recommended use is typically 5 – 10 Ohms. That increases the VBS time constant. If the voltage drop of the bootstrap resistor and the diode is too high or the circuit topology does not allow a sufficient charging time, a fast recovery or ultra−fast recovery diode can be used.
