The HIP4080A is a high frequency, medium voltage Full Bridge N-Channel FET driver IC, available in 20 lead plastic SOIC and DIP packages. The HIP4080A includes an input comparator, used to facilitate the “hysteresis” and PWM modes of operation. Its HEN (high enable) lead can force current to freewheel in the bottom two external power MOSFETs, maintaining the upper power MOSFETs off.
Since it can switch at frequencies up to 1MHz, the HIP4080A is well suited for driving Voice Coil Motors, switching power amplifiers and power supplies.
