High-voltage integrated driver for sine-wave motor control

May 22, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Toshiba Electronics Europe this week introduced a high voltage intelligent power device (HV-IPD) rated to 600 V and 2.5 A, that enables the sine-wave control of brushless DC (BLDC) electric motors in low power industrial fans and pumps as well as white goods including washing machine, dishwashers and fan units.

TPD4204F is a multi-chip module using separate MOSFET dice and a controller chip. The device is housed in a 30 pin SMD-type package (SOP30) that separates all small signal pins from the power pins and measures 20 x 11 x 2 mm. The module provides over-current, over temperature and under voltage protection and can be combined with either MCUs or MCDs.
