Toshiba Announces High Voltage Three-Phase Motor Drivers With Built-In Power Management Circuits for Energy-Saving in Appliance and Machinery Applications

250V and 500V Single Chip PWM Drivers for DC Brushless Motors Feature a

High Level of Integration to Reduce Board Space and Power Consumption



Oct 17, 2006, 01:00 ET from Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to a trend for
 greater energy-saving performance, Toshiba America Electronic Components,
 Inc. (TAEC)* is announcing three high-voltage three-phase motor drivers
 with built-in power management (PWM) circuits for direct current (DC)
 brushless motors, air conditioner fans, and pump motors. Developed by
 Toshiba Corp. (Toshiba), the TPD4104K, TPD4111K and TPD4112K single chip
 inverter ICs are manufactured using a high voltage silicon on insulator
 (SOI) trench isolation process to achieve this level of integration.
     The three devices provide a range of voltage and current specifications
 to meet varying customer requirements. The TPD4111K is rated for 250 volts
 (V) with direct current (DC) output of 1 ampere (Amp), the TPD4112K is a
 500V rated device with DC output of 1 Amp, and the TPD4104K is a 500V rated
 device with DC output of 2 Amps. In addition to the power management
 capability, the new motor drivers feature a three-phase full-bridge
 distribution circuit with level-shift type high-side driver and low-side
 driver, output insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT), and built-in fast
 recovery diode (FRD). The ICs are equipped with protective functions for
 overcurrent, overheating and power supply voltage drop. Hall amplifier
 input signals and microcomputer control signals enable speed control of a
 DC brushless motor connected directly to the driver. Use of a bootstrap
 system with a built-in bootstrap diode eliminates the need for a high-side
 driver power supply. The three motor drivers are available in HZIP23
 packages, measuring 31.5mm x 16.1mm x 5.1mm thick, with an option for leads
 facing left (LBR), right (LBF) or down (LB2).
     "A growing number of home appliances and industrial products are
 employing DC motors and inverters that take lower power consumption and
 protection of the global environment into account. With these devices,
 Toshiba is responding to industry demand for higher power, faster response
 time, and higher levels of integration, all in a small structure," said
 Ajay Chinai, business development manager, discrete products, for TAEC.
