Which mosfet can ir2153 drive?

IR2153 can directly drive medium power types like (10A) IRFB740 Qg=63 nC max. or
(20A) SPP20n60C3 Qg=87 nC and many others provided the gate charge (Qg) is under 200 nC Dont overlook the importance of selecting the proper gate resistor(s)/diode network components. IR2153 can only source 180mA and sink 210mA without buffering.
for higher gate charge types you can use transistor/integrated drivers or GDT.
A very informative article explaining that topic including gate resistor calculation for the IR2153 https://www.elettroamici.org/en/uso-ed-abuso-del-ir2153/
