VR11.1 Compatible Synchronous
Rectified Buck MOSFET Drivers
Features
• Dual MOSFET Drives for Synchronous Rectified Bridge
The ISL6622A is a high frequency MOSFET driver designed
to drive upper and lower power N-Channel MOSFETs in a
synchronous rectified buck converter topology. The advanced
PWM protocol of ISL6622A is specifically designed to work
with Intersil VR11.1 controllers and combined with
N-Channel MOSFETs, form a complete core-voltage regulator
solution for advanced microprocessors. When ISL6622A
detects a PSI protocol sent by an Intersil VR11.1 controller, it
activates Diode Emulation (DE) operation; otherwise, it
operates in normal Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM)
PWM mode.
In the 8 Ld SOIC package, the ISL6622A drives the upper
gate to 12V while the lower get can be driven from 5V to 12V.
The 10 Ld DFN part allows for more flexibility. The upper gate
can be driven from 5V to 12V using the UVCC pin and the
lower gate can also be driven from 5V to 12V using the LVCC
pin. This provides the flexibility necessary to optimize
applications involving trade-offs between gate charge and
conduction losses.
To further enhance light load efficiency, the ISL6622A
enables diode emulation operation during PSI mode. This
allows Discontinuous Conduction Mode (DCM) by detecting
when the inductor current reaches zero and subsequently
turning off the low side MOSFET to prevent it from sinking
current.
An advanced adaptive shoot-through protection is integrated
to prevent both the upper and lower MOSFETs from
conducting simultaneously and to minimize dead time. The
ISL6622A has a 20kΩ integrated high-side gate-to-source
resistor to prevent self turn-on due to high input bus dV/dt.
This driver adds an overvoltage protection feature
operational while VCC is below its POR threshold; the
PHASE node is connected to the gate of the low side
MOSFET (LGATE) via a 10kΩ resistor limiting the output
voltage of the converter close to the gate threshold of the low
side MOSFET, dependent on the current being shunted,
which provides some protection to the load should the upper
MOSFET(s) become shorted.

Description
Operation and Adaptive Shoot-through Protection
Designed for high speed switching, the ISL6622A MOSFET
driver controls both high-side and low-side N-Channel FETs
from one externally provided PWM signal.
A rising transition on PWM initiates the turn-off of the lower
MOSFET (see Figure 1). After a short propagation delay
[tPDLL], the lower gate begins to fall. Typical fall time [tFL] is
provided in the “Electrical Specifications” on page 5. Following
a 25ns blanking period, adaptive shoot-through circuitry
monitors the LGATE voltage and turns on the upper gate
following a short delay time [tPDHU] after the LGATE voltage
drops below ~1.75V. The upper gate drive then begins to rise
[tRU] and the upper MOSFET turns on.
A falling transition on PWM indicates the turn-off of the upper
MOSFET and the turn-on of the lower MOSFET. A short
propagation delay [tPDLU] is encountered before the upper
gate begins to fall [tFU]. The adaptive shoot-through circuitry
monitors the UGATE-PHASE voltage and turns on the lower
MOSFET a short delay time [tPDHL] after the upper
MOSFET’s PHASE voltage drops below +0.8V or 40ns after
the upper MOSFET’s gate voltage [UGATE-PHASE] drops
below ~1.75V. The lower gate then rises [tRL], turning on the
lower MOSFET. These methods prevent both the lower and
upper MOSFETs from conducting simultaneously
(shoot-through), while adapting the dead-time to the gate
charge characteristics of the MOSFETs being used.
This driver is optimized for voltage regulators with large step
down ratio. The lower MOSFET is usually sized larger
compared to the upper MOSFET because the lower MOSFET
conducts for a longer time during a switching period. The
lower gate driver is therefore sized much larger to meet this
application requirement. The 0.8Ω ON-resistance and 3A sink
current capability enable the lower gate driver to absorb the
current injected into the lower gate through the drain-to-gate
capacitor of the lower MOSFET and help prevent
6
shoot-through caused by the self turn-on of the lower
MOSFET due to high dV/dt of the switching node.
Advanced PWM Protocol (Patent Pending)
The advanced PWM protocol of ISL6622A is specifically
designed to work with Intersil VR11.1 controllers. When
ISL6622A detects a PSI protocol sent by an Intersil VR11.1
controller, it turns on diode emulation operation; otherwise, it
remains in normal CCM PWM mode.
Another unique feature of ISL6622A and other Intersil
drivers is the addition of a three-state shutdown window to
the PWM input. If the PWM signal enters and remains within
the shutdown window for a set holdoff time, the driver
outputs are disabled and both MOSFET gates are pulled and
held low. The shutdown state is removed when the PWM
signal moves outside the shutdown window. Otherwise, the
PWM rising and falling thresholds outlined in the “Electrical
Specifications” on page 4 determine when the lower and
upper gates are enabled. This feature helps prevent a
negative transient on the output voltage when the output is
shut down, eliminating the Schottky diode that is used in
some systems for protecting the load from reversed output
voltage events.
Note that the LGATE will not turn off until the diode
emulation minimum LGATE ON-time of 350ns is expired for
a PWM low to tri-level (2.5V) transition.
Power-On Reset (POR) Function
During initial start-up, the VCC voltage rise is monitored.
Once the rising VCC voltage exceeds rising POR threshold,
operation of the driver is enabled and the PWM input signal
takes control of the gate drives. If VCC drops below the
falling threshold, operation of the driver is disabled.
Pre-POR Overvoltage Protection
While VCC is below its POR level, the upper gate is held low
and LGATE is connected to the PHASE pin via an internal
10kΩ (typically) resistor. By connecting the PHASE node to the
gate of the low side MOSFET, the driver offers some passive
FN6601.2

ISL6622A
protection to the load if the upper MOSFET(s) is or becomes
shorted. If the PHASE node goes higher than the gate
threshold of the lower MOSFET, it results in the progressive
turn-on of the device and the effective clamping of the PHASE
node’s rise. The actual PHASE node clamping level depends
on the lower MOSFET’s electrical characteristics, as well as the
characteristics of the input supply and the path connecting it to
the respective PHASE node.
Internal Bootstrap Device
The ISL6622A features an internal bootstrap Schottky diode.
Simply adding an external capacitor across the BOOT and
PHASE pins completes the bootstrap circuit. The bootstrap
function is also designed to prevent the bootstrap capacitor
from overcharging due to the large negative swing at the
trailing-edge of the PHASE node. This reduces voltage
stress on the BOOT to PHASE pins.

upper gate drive is fixed to VCC [+12V] in the SOIC, but the
lower drive rail can be driven from 5V to 12V using the LVCC
pin. In the DFN package, a separate UVCC pin is available
for the upper gate drive voltage to be driven from 5V to 12V
for efficiency optimization, while the lower gate can be driven
independently using the LVCC pin from 5V to 12V.
Diode Emulation
Diode emulation allows for higher converter efficiency under
light-load situations. With diode emulation active, the
ISL6622A detects the zero current crossing of the output
inductor and turns off LGATE. This prevents the low side
MOSFET from sinking current and ensures that
discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) is achieved. The
LGATE has a minimum on-time of 350ns in DCM mode.
Power Dissipation
Package power dissipation is mainly a function of the
switching frequency (FSW), the output drive impedance, the
external gate resistance, and the selected MOSFET’s internal
gate resistance and total gate charge. Calculating the power
dissipation in the driver for a desired application is critical to
ensure safe operation. Exceeding the maximum allowable
power dissipation level may push the IC beyond the maximum
recommended operating junction temperature. The DFN
package is more suitable for high frequency applications. See
“Layout Considerations” on page 8 for thermal transfer
improvement suggestions. When designing the driver into an
application, it is recommended that the following calculation is
used to ensure safe operation at the desired frequency for the
selected MOSFETs. The total gate drive power losses due to
the gate charge of MOSFETs and the driver’s internal circuitry
and their corresponding average driver current can be
estimated with Equations 2 and 3, respectively:

where QG1 is the amount of gate charge per upper MOSFET

allowable droop in the rail of the upper gate drive. Select
results are exemplified in Figure 2.

The total gate drive power losses are dissipated among the
resistive components along the transition path, as outlined in
Equation 4. The drive resistance dissipates a portion of the
total gate drive power losses, the rest will be dissipated by the
external gate resistors (RG1 and RG2) and the internal gate
resistors (RGI1 and RGI2) of MOSFETs. Figures 3 and 4 show
the typical upper and lower gate drives turn-on current path.

Application Information
Layout Considerations
During switching of the devices, the parasitic inductances of
the PCB and the power devices’ packaging (both upper and
lower MOSFETs) leads to ringing, possibly in excess of the
absolute maximum rating of the devices. Careful layout can
help minimize such unwanted stress. The following advice is
meant to lead to an optimized layout:
• Keep decoupling loops (LVCC-GND and BOOT-PHASE)
as short as possible.
8
• Minimize the inductance of the PHASE node: ideally, the
source of the upper and the drain of the lower MOSFET
should be as close as thermally allowable.
• Minimize the input current loop: connect the source of the
lower MOSFET to ground as close to the transistor pin as
feasible; input capacitors (especially ceramic decoupling)
should be placed as close to the drain of upper and source
of lower MOSFETs as possible.
In addition, for improved heat dissipation, place copper
underneath the IC whether it has an exposed pad or not. The
copper area can be extended beyond the bottom area of the
IC and/or connected to buried power ground plane(s) with
thermal vias. This combination of vias for vertical heat
escape, extended surface copper islands, and buried planes
combine to allow the IC and the power switches to achieve
their full thermal potential.

• Minimize trace inductance, especially low-impedance
lines: all power traces (UGATE, PHASE, LGATE, GND,
LVCC) should be short and wide, as much as possible.
Should the driver have insufficient bias voltage applied, its
outputs are floating. If the input bus is energized at a high
dV/dt rate while the driver outputs are floating, due to
self-coupling via the internal CGD of the MOSFET, the gate of
the upper MOSFET could momentarily rise up to a level
greater than the threshold voltage of the device, potentially
turning on the upper switch. Therefore, if such a situation
could conceivably be encountered, it is a common practice to
place a resistor (RUGPH) across the gate and source of the
upper MOSFET to suppress the Miller coupling effect. The
value of the resistor depends mainly on the input voltage’s
rate of rise, the CGD/CGS ratio, as well as the gate-source
threshold of the upper MOSFET. A higher dV/dt, a lower
CDS/CGS ratio, and a lower gate-source threshold upper FET
will require a smaller resistor to diminish the effect of the
internal capacitive coupling. For most applications, the
integrated 20kΩ resistor is sufficient, not affecting normal
performance and efficiency.
The coupling effect can be roughly estimated with
Equation 5, which assumes a fixed linear input ramp and
neglects the clamping effect of the body diode of the upper
drive and the bootstrap capacitor. Other parasitic
components such as lead inductances and PCB
capacitances, are also not taken into account. Figure 5
provides a visual reference for this phenomenon and its
potential solution.
