    Hi,
    I would like to know what is the difference between MOSFET High side
    and low side drivers.Are there any good documents available for
    developing spice models for these?

    : One is PMOS the other is NMOS

    There are NMOS high side with charge pumps

  3. The high side drivers (those designed for driving N-channel high-side
    MOSFETs) are often more complex with a bootstrap supply and level
    translation in addition to the buffer function. The low side drivers
    are more or less just a buffer, perhaps with low-voltage inhibit
    and/or deadtime circuitry.

    Best regards,
