TOSHIBA RELEASES 600V SMALL INTELLIGENT POWER DEVICES FOR BRUSHLESS DC MOTOR DRIVES
Through hole type small package helps reduce mounting area and the size of circuit boards for motor drives.
Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation has launched two products of 600V small intelligent power devices (IPD) for brushless DC motor drive applications such as air conditioners, air cleaners, and pumps. Volume shipments of “TPD4163K” and “TPD4164K,” which have output current (DC) ratings of 1A and 2A, respectively, have started.
Both new products are housed in a through hole type HDIP30 package, which reduces the mounting area by approximately 21% against Toshiba’s previous products. This helps reduce the size of motor drive circuit boards.
As power supply voltage may fluctuate significantly in regions with unstable power supply, the voltage has been increased from the 500V of Toshiba’s previous products to 600V, which improves reliability.
A “Reference Design for Sensorless Brushless DC Motor Drive Circuit” that utilizes the functions of the new TPD4164K with a TMPM374FWUG microcontroller with vector control engine is available on Toshiba’s website.
