The TPD4164K,F from Toshiba is a Brushless DC Motor Driver IC that is ideal for motor control applications. It requires an input voltage of 15 V. This power management IC is fabricated based on a high-voltage silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process and is suitable for current sensing in three-shunt resistance. It accommodates a bootstrap circuit that provides a high-side supply and has bootstrap diodes that ensure proper isolation between the high-voltage power side and low-voltage signal side terminals. This motor driver IC has protective functions for over-current, under-voltage lockout (UVLO), and thermal shutdown conditions. It uses the logic inputs from an external microcontroller to optimally control the DC motor driver. This RoHS-compliant IC is available in a surface-mount package that measures 32.8 x 11.4 mm.
