Other Parts Discussed in Thread: UCC27517
I have designed a simple circuit to turn on/off a MOSFET using the UCC27517 gate driver. The schematic is below.
Using a waveform generator, I am applying a pulse signal with a width of 100ns at the Pulse input. Then, I am supplying the gate driver with 5V (although the schematic says 12V). However, at the output of the driver, the signal is ringing, as the image below shows. The waveform in yellow is the Pulse signal and the waveform in green is the driver output (the colours are also represented on the schematic).
The main goal was to use a pulse width of 20ns but the output signal is even worse. Could the cause of the ringing be the overshoot and undershoot of the pulse signal from the Waveform Generator? Or is it another problem?
I do not know if this helps, but I am using these cables on the Waveform Generator.
Thank you in advance.
