Take full advantage of the properties of silicon carbide

Meet the challenges of silicon carbide (SiC) with confidence. Only Microchip offers digital drivers designed to directly address the requirements of SiC implementation.

Our new 1200V AgileSwitch® 2ASC-12A2HP dual-channel digital driver with Augmented Switching™ technology provides multiple levels of control and protection for safe and reliable operation of SiC MOSFET-based power systems. This device, approved to meet the most demanding requirements of the automotive industry, has been designed to meet the demand for greater efficiency in electrified heavy vehicles.

In addition, the 2ASC-12A2HP is compatible with the latest version of our ICT (Intelligent Configuration Tool) interface, which allows you to configure certain driver parameters. The resulting driver adapts to your applications without the need to change nearby hardware, saving six months of development time on new designs.

Are you ready to reach new levels of power density in your transportation systems and industrial applications? Explore our proven solutions and unlock the full potential of SiC today.

Main features of the AgileSwitch 2ASC-12A2HP

  • Decreases surges between sink and source (VDS) by up to 80% and reduces switching losses by up to 50%
  • Supplies/sinks peak currents up to 10A and incorporates an isolated DC/DC converter with a low-capacitance isolation barrier for pulse-width modulation (PWM) signals and fault feedback
  • Compatible with our extensive portfolio of SiC power modules and devices, as well as SiC products from other manufacturers
