Halogen Lighting Solutions
Halogen (Popular in indoor commercial and residential applications, IR2153 simplifies the design, used by leading lighting manufacturers)
IR P/N Description
IR2153 The IR2153/IR2153D are an improved version of the popular IR2155 and IR2151 gate driver ICs, and incorporates a high voltage half-bridge gate driver with a front end oscillator similar to the industry standard CMOS 555 timer.
IR2156 High voltage half-bridge gate driver with a programmable oscillator and state diagram to form a complete ballast control IC including programmable features and built-in protection.
IR53H420/IR53HD420 Complete high voltage, high speed, self-oscillating half-bridge circuits with proprietary HVIC, latch immune CMOS and HEXFET ® power MOSFET technologies to enable ruggedized single package construction.
