Bootstrap drive for two transistor forward
« on: May 28, 2023, 10:26:13 am »
As you know, Two tran forward  was never a candidate for bootstrapping, since it has no "pushpull" drive for the bootstrap cap refresh.
However, the attached shows its  easily possible.
Since modern bootstrap drivers, like 2ED2109,  have immunity to -11V on the Vs pin, and CMTI of 50v/ns, then why do people still use gate drive transformers for the high side drive?
