The fault latch and filter circuit used in a MOSgated driver for a high side power MOSgated device to turn off the MOSgated device high side output in response to a given fault condition is located in the high side of the circuit and in a floating well of a semiconductor chip containing the driver circuit. The fault latch and filter are connected to the output driver circuit through a gate which also receives the high side filter and latch which are operated by the input control logic circuits through a level-shift up circuit. The fault latch circuit has an output which is level-shifted down by a single PMOS device to a fault reporting latch circuit on the low side of the device.
