The UC3709 family of power drivers is an effective low-cost solution to the problem of providing fast turn-on and off for the capacitive gates of power MOSFETs. Made with a high-speed Schottky process, these devices will provide up to 1.5 A of either source or sink current from a totem-pole output stage configured for minimal cross-conduction current spike.
The UC3709 is pin compatible with the MMH0026 or DS0026, and while the delay times are longer, the supply current is much less than these older devices.
With inverting logic, these units feature complete TTL compatibility at the inputs with an output stage that can swing over 30 V. This design also includes thermal shutdown protection.
