Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) has released three high-voltage three-phase motor drivers with built-in power management circuits. The circuits were designed for direct current brushless motors, air conditioner fans and pump motors. Developed by Toshiba Corp., the TPD4104K, TPD4111K and TDP4112K single- chip inverter ICs are manufactured using high-voltage silicon on insulator trench isolation process.
The motor drivers were created to help with energy savings. “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,” says Ajay Chinai, business development manager, discrete products for TAEC. “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.”
