Fairchild’s New SPM® Smart Power Modules Deliver Industry-Leading Efficiency

Worldwide, small electric motors – like those in dishwashers, air conditioners and fans – account for up to 50 percent of total global energy consumption. With growing consumer demand for these appliances, power management solutions that maximize efficiency are a necessity for a greener and better future.

To help designers meet these needs, Fairchild developed the FSB70xxx series of advanced Motion SPM® 7 modules. Targeting small power motors under 100 W, these modules deliver industry-leading light-load efficiency (up to 44% better than the leading competition), robust on-module protection, and superior thermal efficiency up to 12% better from junction to case.

Additionally, the FSB70xxx series integrates an optimized gate driver for the built-in MOSFETs (using FRFET® technology) to minimize EMI and losses, while also providing multiple on-module protection features including under-voltage lockouts, thermal monitoring, fault reporting and interlock function.

“The FSB70xxx series enables a simple, compact, high performance, and more reliable system design for small-sized motor control,” said SI Yong, Director, Motion Control System Team at Fairchild. “It is available in a high-performance PQFN package that can save up to 50 percent of board space, critical in space-constrained applications.”

A free online loss calculation tool allows engineers to quickly see how these advantages will improve their design.

Key Features:

  • Fully-featured, high-performance inverter output stage for AC induction, brushless DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM)
  • Optimized for Low Electromagnetic Interference
  • HVIC Temperature-Sensing Built-In for Temperature Monitoring
  • Separate Open-Source Pins from Low-Side MOSFETs for Three-Phase Current-Sensing
  • Active-HIGH Interface, Works with 3.3 / 5 V Logic, Schmitt-trigger Input
  • HVIC for Gate Driving with Under-Voltage Protection and Interlock Function
  • Isolation Rating: 1500 Vrms / min.
  • Moisture Sensitive Level (MSL) 3
  • UL Certified No. E209204 (UL1557)
  • RoHS Compliant

Applications:

  • Air conditioner indoor / outdoor fans
  • Dishwashers
  • Pedestal fans / ceiling fans
  • Small pumps
  • Small power AC motor drives

It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.
