The IR2155 is a high voltage, high speed, self- oscillating power MOSFET and IGBT driver with both high and low side referenced output channels. Pro- prietary HVIC and latch immune CMOS technolo- gies enable ruggedized monolithic construction. The front end features a programmable oscillator which is similar to the IR2155 IR2151 IR2152 . IC . CMOS555 . MOS . . Since introduction,the IR2155 has set an indus- try standard which has been advanced by subsequent devic- es, culminating in third generation products IR2153, IR2154,. IR21531, IR53H series SIP hybrid modules and now the IR2157 and IR2159. 1. Technical Comparison of Second and Third. Generation Self Oscillating The three available self-oscillating drivers are IR2151,. IR2152 and IR2155 . IR2155 has larger output buffers that switch a 1000 pF capacitive load with tr = 80 ns and tf. = 40 ns. It has mi- cro power start-up and 150 ohm RT source. IR2151 has tr and tf of 100 ns and 50 ns and functions similarly to IR2155 . IR2152 is identical 5 - Frequency Control by Offset Bias Voltage. IR2155 , 2151, 2152, 2153 are all self-oscillating level shifting driver ICs incorporating an oscillator similar to the ever popular 555 timer IC. The oscillator uses a timing capacitor and resistor and switches when the capacitor is charged and discharged to voltages of 1/3 VCC and
