Re: Self-Resonant Driver Boards (DRSSTC, ISSTC, etc...) Bulk Purchase ? ? ? ? Anyone ? ? ?

Really nothing to do with pulse width but more a concern of duty cycle.

PRF of the pulse (interruptor) frequency has little effect as its such a low
frequency to begin with.

I wouldn't run more than a 10-15% duty cycle using the UCC drivers and those
You have four UCC drivers (two 321 paralleled, and two 322's paralleled) and
driving four (4) 15-20nF
gate loads with the fairchild IGBTs.

If you ran 100% duty cycle at 100kHz the dissipations on the UCC chips would
be very high and burn them up very quickly.
