Part Number: LM2903-Q1
I am generating complimentary pulses using LM2903 by comparing the modulation signal with the saw-tooth. These are fed to UCC27712 as HI and LI.
What I noticed is a capacitive loading effect on the bottom pulse which is delaying the rise time of the pulse. Further reducing the pull-up resistor of comparator is not helping in anyway.
In order to use a buffer between the comparator output and the Gate driver, what factors should I consider apart from the slew rate and increased capacitive loading?
Can someone suggest me a good part-number to use which is less susceptible for capacitive loading and can still operate at high switching frequencies like 500 kHz?
Thanks in advance,
What is your operating voltage? It would be preferable to use a comparator with a push pull output stage.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Chuck Sins:
My operating voltage for the IC is 14.4 V.
In reply to Subrahmanyam V:
Our TLV1805 would offer the best response since it can handle the 14.4V operating voltage and it has a push pull output stage.
It is available as a single channel only, so it would require two devices if you need two channels.
When the gate driver is symmetrical for both signals, why will the LI signal only will have loading as such?
If loading were to happen, HI and LI should load equally! Isn't it?
Sorry, at this point you will need to show your circuit and waveform so we can better support you.
By switching to a push pull output stage, the output waveform will be more symmetrical then if you use an open collector device.
If the capacitive loading problem is occurring at the input, this will not help. So please share your circuit and waveforms.
There has not been a new post on this thread for a while, so I will be closing it.
