I am thinking of a combination of ADuM4135 and SiC MOSFET.
Since the output current of ADuM4135 is insufficient, we are considering adding a buffer.
Do you have a reference circuit or application note for ADuM4135 + buffer?
I don't have a reference circuit readily available for the ADuM4135 + buffer, but I am curious what gate charge and rise times you are hoping to achieve. The ADuM4135 is marked as a 4 A driver, but the 4 A is not the short circuit peak current, but rather a typical use case value. You can use the driver with a peak current higher than 4 A if desired. Is this SiC device a large module?
If using an external buffer, the main concerns become interfacing with the soft-shutdown and connecting the Miller clamp. Connecting the Gate_sense pin to the SiC device gate is recommended. If a desat fault is detected, and soft-shutdown is entered, the buffer stage would most likely result in a normal strength turn off, but shifted by the prop delay of the buffer stage.
A peak current of about 8A is assumed.
SiC : Qg = 1150nC, Internal Resistance = 1.2ohm , External Gate Resistance = 1ohm
I expect a fast rise time.
Gate_sense pin connects directly to the gate of the SiC device.
I think that the mirror clamp function works normally.
