SCALE-2® Evaluation Boards
for CONCEPTs IGBT Gate Driver Cores
CONCEPT provides evaluation boards that greatly simplify the operation start of all SCALE-2® driver cores by end-users. The evaluation boards have been optimized to allow all kinds of low-voltage tests to be performed conveniently on the driver. The overall driver functionality, direct and half-bridge mode, IGBT short-circuit conditions or undervoltage lockouts as well as several driver potentials and signal timings can be measured simply with the aid of many test points.
Evaluation boards greatly simplify the operation start of all SCALE-2® driver cores and allow all kinds of low-voltage tests to be performed conveniently on the driver: they permit the simple operation start of driver cores.

- Include all components required to run the core driver - BNC sockets for the signals - 4mm sockets for the power supply - Support direct and half-bridge mode with settable dead times - Simulate IGBT short circuits with various response times and a settable VCE monitoring threshold - Measurements with various gate resistors and loads - Schematics and assembly drawings available - Not suitable for high-voltage measurements!
2SC0435T DRIVER CORE ON THE 2EB0435T EVALUATION BOARD
To start using the evaluation board, simply mount the driver core on the socket, connect 4mm plugs to the board and apply switching signals over the BNC connectors. The capacitor load and gate resistors are plugged into sockets and can therefore be easily modified. The inserted switches allow the load to be decoupled or IGBT short circuits to be simulated. Features such as direct or half-bridge mode as well as the value of the blocking time and the VCE monitoring threshold can be set with the aid of jumpers. The dead time can be set with a plug-in resistor.
Note that the evaluation boards are not designed for performing high-voltage tests. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

EVALUATION BOARD OR BASE BOARD?
For an easy start of operation and low voltage verification the evaluation boards are recommended. Please use the base boards for any high-voltage measurements and tests.
