A bootstrap circuit is one that is composed of a control power supply to drive high-side IGBT. It is possible to have a single power supply as it does not require a transformer with multiple secondary windings. Its built-in bootstrap resistance and bootstrap diode (BSD) gives a small IPM to configure a bootstrap circuit simply by adding an external bootstrap capacitor.
