bootstrap circuit

bootstrap circuit

[′büt‚strap ‚sər·kət]
(electronics)
A single-stage amplifier in which the output load is connected between the negative end of the anode supply and the cathode, while signal voltage is applied between grid and cathode; a change in grid voltage changes the input signal voltage with respect to ground by an amount equal to the output signal voltage.

An integrated bootstrap circuit for each high side pre-driver requires only an external capacitor.
An external high-side bootstrap circuit drives the buck switching element at high frequencies up to 500kHz.
Additional space savings and total bill of materials (BOM) reductions are realized because the TDA21201 does not require the bootstrap circuit necessary with other solutions.
