This book describes advanced high frequency power MOSFET gate driver technologies, which serve a critical role between control and power devices. A gate driver is a power amplifier that accepts a low-power input from a controller integrated circuit and produces a high-current drive input for the gate of a high-power transistor such as a power MOSFET (metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor).
