If i refer the data sheet of IR2181 and attached an image of the ratings and characteristics. I see huge current values of 100A etc. These are very high values, how to understand them, will the IC will be able
to handle so much current without burning etc? I am beginner in electronics and trying to understand things.

IS and ISM are the body diode characteristics of a power MOSFET. They are not related to the gate driver IR2181.

IR2181 datasheet is available at https://www.infineon.com/dgdl/Infineon-IR2181-DataSheet-v01_00-EN.pdf?fileId=5546d462533600a4015355c...
