The new product is a 3-channel half-bridge driver IC incorporating 6 DMOSs. It can control a three-phase brushless DC motor easily by turning the DMOS on and off with the input signals from an MCU.
Supplied in a small package, the new product is best suited for applications such as cooling fans with limited mounting space. Safety in driving the motor is enhanced by various circuits such as over current detection, thermal shutdown circuit.
Key Features of the New Product
Shoot-through current protection
Shoot-through current is prevented by applying the logic circuit that prevents the upper and lower DMOSs of the driver from being turned on simultaneously. This capability removes the responsibility from the microcontroller, thus reducing the load on the MCU.
Leadless VQFN package (5mm×5mm×0.9mm) enables the IC to be mounted on a limited mounting space of the applications such as small cooling fans. The thermal radiation pad is attached at the bottom to further enhance the cooling and contribute to improve radiating characteristics.
Abnormality detection functions
Over current detection, thermal shutdown circuit, and under voltage lockout circuit are incorporated to improve safety in driving motors.

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...
