Toshiba Corporation introduces the latest addition to its line-up of H bridge driver ICs for low-voltage brushed DC motors used in battery-powered equipment, camera equipment and household electrical devices.
The new TC78H610FNG bridge driver ICs feature a small package (SSOP16) size to support downsizing and cost reduction. The small package type reduces the required mounting area by 21% compared to products housed in SSOP20 packages.
The TC78H610FNG ICs therefore, allow both PCB cost and equipment size to be reduced.
Key features of the new TC78H610FNG bridge driver ICs include ability to control two brushed DC motors or one stepping motor; abnormality detection functions (over current detection, thermal shutdown circuit, and under voltage lockout circuit) improving safety in driving motor; and consumption current 0μA (typ.) in standby mode.
By adopting shoot-through current protection, the motor can be controlled without consideration for dead time in switching output between ON and OFF.
