Dear Sir /Mam
There is one issue regarding LTC Mosfet driver IC 7004. IC is working fine with input from SMPS of about 28 Volts 8 amps , But as soon as we connect Battery input of about 24 Volts , IC gets damged , I am using IC7004 as high side application driver in my application to switch 28 volts from smps or battery output of about 24 Volts. Also I am not violating the pin voltage rating of INP and VCC of the IC both are in safe margin of about 7 Volts and 12 Volts Respectively. Also I had checked the current rating of INP pin when driver IC is on it is about 11 ampere. Reply as early as possible If required I could also share the circuit schematic.
I think this design needs input and output high voltage transient protection when the user connect this circuit to the battery manually.
I added my recommendations to the schematic. See below for…
Could you give us the damage report? Which part or function of the LTC7004 is not working?
Please send us the up to date schematic.
