I'm making a boost converter in LTspice, initially with ideal switches and comparators, but now trying to use realistic components.
For the MOSEFT I just picked one from the available ones that has a low on resistance and small gate capacitance.
The gate drives is a bit more tricky, as they don't seem to come included with LTspice. So I went on the hunt on the web, and found that Infineon provides (unencrypted!) spice models.
I made a little test schematic, like in the picture below, but the HO and LO outputs are stuck at respectively 5V and 0V. I have so far tried IR2183, IR2181, and IR2101 based on both the PSpice and OrCad files. All of them produce identical results: nothing.
I'm not tied to any particular driver or even manufacturer, so if there is a way to make this gate driver work, great, if there is another manufacturer that produces gate drivers and corresponding spice files, also fine.
