- Wide-body, 8-lead SOIC_IC
The ADuM4122 is an isolated, single device, dual output driver that uses iCoupler® technology to provide precision isolation. The ADuM4122 provides 5 kV rms isolation in the wide-body, 8-lead SOIC package. These isolation components combine high speed complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) and monolithic transformer technology to provide performance characteristics superior to alternatives (such as a combination of pulse transformers and gate drivers).
The ADuM4122 operates with an input supply voltage range from 3.3 V to 6.5 V, providing compatibility with lower voltage systems. Unlike gate drivers that employ high voltage level translation methodologies, the ADuM4122 offers true galvanic isolation between the input and the output regions.
The ADuM4122 includes two output pins that facilitate slew rate control of two output drive strengths. The VOUT pin follows the logic of the VIN+ pin, while the boosting output, VOUT_SRC, can be toggled to follow the VIN+ pin or to go high-Z. The toggling of the slew rate is controlled by the primary side. Slew rate control can allow for electromagnetic interference (EMI) mitigation and voltage overshoot control.
An internal thermal shutdown sets outputs low if internal temperatures on the ADuM4122 exceed the thermal shutdown temperature.
As a result, the ADuM4122 provides reliable control over the switching characteristics of insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) and metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) configurations over a wide range of switching voltages, allowing for simple slew rate control.

Markets and Technologies
Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The EVAL-ADuM4122EBZ evaluation board supports the ADuM4122 isolated gate driver with slew rate control. iCoupler® technology provides isolation between the ADuM4122 input signal and the output gate driver. The evaluation board supplies jumpers and screw terminals to configure different drive conditions. The EVAL-ADuM4122EBZ board operates with square waves and dc values on the VIN+ and SRC pins.
The ADuM4122 is operational with voltages of up to 35 V. Logic level voltages at the VIN+ pin control the VOUT output. The SRC pin controls whether the VOUT_SRC pin is either set to high-Z or follows the logic of the user supplied pulse-width modulation (PWM) input at VIN+. When the external series gate resistors combine the outputs from the VOUT and VOUT_SRC pins, one isolated gate driver is then able to have two easily selectable slew rates.
The EVAL-ADuM4122EBZ board tests the propagation delay, drive strength, slew rate selection, and input logic of the device.
Refer to the ADuM4122 data sheet for complete information about the ADuM4122, and consult the data sheet in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation board.
