IR2110 Pinout: Evaluation and Analysis

The IR2110 pinout view for PDIP IC

IR2110 pinout in PDIP IC architecture

The days when you could fix pretty much everything on your car in the backyard with a modest assortment of screwdrivers and sockets are a distant memory. Vehicles today may contain as many as a few thousand microchips. These components enable the design of automotive systems with ever increasing functionality that translates into more comfortable, reliable, and safer transportation for drivers and passengers.

Many of the ICs in automotive systems are transistors; including MOSFETs and insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IBGTs). An important aspect of employing these devices is the driving circuitry. An  integrated monolithic HVIC driver for high-speed, high-voltage, dual-channel operation that has proven to be very successful for automotive applications is the IR2110. By examining the IR2110 pinout and component characteristics you will be able to best use this IC module in your design.

The IR2110 Pinout

The IR2110, manufactured by Infineon Technologies comes in two common IC package options: plastic dual in-line package (PDIP) and small outline integrated circuit (SOIC) package. The IR2110 pinouts for these package types, are shown below.

As indicated above, the IR2113, which is a faster switching device for higher voltage applications, has the same pin designations as the IR2110. From the IR2110 datasheet, the pin descriptions are listed in the table below for both package types.



Pin No. 





Low side gate drive output



Low side return



Low side supply



High side floating supply return



High side floating supply



High side gate drive output



Logic supply



Logic input for high side gate driver output (HO), in phase



Logic input for shutdown



Logic input for low side gate driver output (LO), in phase



Logic ground

As listed, both devices have both a low and high side input and output. For the IR2110, the high side max voltage is 500V. For the IR2113, this voltage is 600V. These and other important features are given in the section below.
