Description

The MAX15070A/MAX15070B are high-speed MOSFET drivers capable of sinking 7A and sourcing 3A peak currents. The ICs, which are an enhancement over MAX5048 devices, have inverting and noninverting inputs that provide greater flexibility in controlling the MOSFET. They also feature two separate outputs working in complementary mode, offering flexibility in controlling both turn-on and turn-off switching speeds.

The ICs have internal logic circuitry that prevents shoot-through during output-state changes. The logic inputs are protected against voltage spikes up to +16V, regardless of V+ voltage. Propagation delay time is minimized and matched between the inverting and noninverting inputs. The ICs have a very fast switching time, combined with short propagation delays (12ns typ), making them ideal for high-frequency circuits. The ICs operate from a +4V to +14V single power supply and typically consume 0.5mA of supply current. The MAX15070A has standard TTL input logic levels, while the MAX15070B has CMOS-like high-noise-margin (HNM) input logic levels.

Both ICs are available in a 6-pin SOT23 package and operate over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range.
