TOSHIBA LAUNCHES GATE-DRIVER IC FOR AUTOMOTIVE BRUSHLESS DC MOTORS
The newly launched gate-driver IC for automotive brushless DC motors can be used in applications such as electric power steering (EPS), electric brakes and shift-by-wire.
Automotive equipment: Electric power steering (EPS), electric braking, shift-by-wire, various types of pumps, etc.
- 3 channels of drivers for safety relays
- Adoption of a small package reduces the mounting area by approximately 66%
- Built-in self-diagnosis circuit for external MOSFETs
Toshiba will continue to steadily introduce improved functions that match the requirements of ISO 26262 2nd edition into gate-driver IC for automotive three-phase brushless DC motors, and to contribute to the electrification and safety enhancement of automotive equipment.
