International Rectifier’s AUIRS2016S is a high-voltage power MOSFET high-side driver featuring an internal voltage spike immunity (Vs) to ground (GND) recharge NMOS. The device is made for automotive gate drive applications including diesel fuel-injection rails, solenoid drivers, and gasoline direct-injection applications. Qualified to AEC-Q100 standards, the AUIRS2016S’s output driver has a 250 mA high-pulse current buffer stage. The channel can be used to drive an N-channel power MOSFET in the high-side configuration, operating up to 150 v above ground. The RoHS-compliant device also provides negative voltage spike immunity (-Vs) to protect against catastrophic events during high-current switching and short-circuit conditions. According to the company, the robust AUIRS2016S is designed to meet the rugged performance needs of automotive under-the-hood motor control units.
