# Maximum output Current IR2183S

Level 2

Hello Guys,

We are building  a schmetics with IR2183S + IRF1010E. The 1,4A current is not reaching the mosfet gate, according to the datasheet. The cuurent is much smaller. We aren´t understanding why.

Can someone help me?

Thanks,

Walmir

Hello @WalmirSantos ,

Yes. Your understanding is correct. Maximum output source current on HO pin is typ 210mA (min -130mA) @Vo=0V & Vbias=15V. For different Vbias condition, the output source current can be derived from the characteristic graph provided in Figure 22B in the device datasheet. Vbias condition in your simulation would be different, hence you are observing different Io+ value.

Hello @WalmirSantos ,

Can you please let us know what are the drive voltage levels and  Rg value used in your design?

Hello Guys,

VCC=15V and Rg=4.7ohms

We are using the simulator Infineon and We had a output current on IR2104 Igh=300mA (peake) and Igh=262mA (nominal), but in datasheet We have a nominal current IO+=210mA (output high short circuit pulsed current.

Is it correct?

Thanks,

Walmir Santos

Hello Walmir,

Let me try the simulation on my end. Will get back with the results.

Thank you very much.

The IR2104 drains on your HO only 130 mA for charge. This is my doubt.
