ROMOLAND, CA—With a small surface mount package featuring rugged housing materials that are highly resistant to the effects of EMI, the new SM580 Series Gate Drive Transformers from Datatronic Distribution, Inc., provides efficient pulse control in gate drive circuits used in MOSFETs and IGBTs for Switch Mode Power Supplies and other electronic equipment.

The new Datatronic SM580 Gate Drive Transformers have a typical pulse rating of 21 Vµsec and features a hi-pot rating of up to 1500 Vdc. The DCR is 2.8 Ohms.  Turns ratios available, depending on model configuration, are:  1:1, 1:1.5 and 1:1:1.   The SM580s’ design combines high performance with a compact size, high temperature compatibility and economy for use in a wide range of equipment. 

The Model SM580 provides excellent drive characteristics for power supplies in PCs, telecom gear, instrumentation, industrial controls and other electronic devices that require power supplies.  Its conductive packaging can be effective in minimizing the effects of radiated EMI emissions.

The SM580 features a low profile design that measures only 4.31 mm (0.170 inch) high with a flat top.  The package footprint is 6.60-x-8.38 mm (0.260-x-0.330 inch) for compatibility with high-density circuit designs.  Its flat top makes the SM580 ideal for automated pick and place manufacturing, and comes in tape-and-reel packaging.

The SM580 Gate Drive Transformer from Datatronic is priced beginning at $­0.59 each in typical production quantities. Custom turns ratios, inductance values and high-volume OEM pricing are available upon request.  Delivery time is stock to four weeks on common values.

Datatronic Distribution, Inc., manufactures custom and standard off-the-shelf transformers, inductors for switching power supplies, DC-DC converters, power conditioning, TS16949 automotive, instrumentation, process control, motor control and telecom applications.
