dual DMOS full bridge motor driver IC is targeted at the office automation and
consumer and industrial markets. Designed for pulse width modulated (PWM)
control of two dc motors, the A4954 is capable of peak
output currents to ±2 A and operating voltages to 40V. Integrated charge
pump capacitors reduce external component cost and count.
terminals are provided for use in controlling the speed and direction of a dc
motor with externally applied PWM control signals. Internal synchronous
rectification control circuitry is provided to lower power dissipation during
PWM operation. Internal circuit protection includes overcurrent protection,
motor lead short to ground or supply, thermal shutdown with hysteresis,
undervoltage monitoring of VBB, and crossover current protection.
A4954ELPTR-T is provided in a low-profile 16-pin TSSOP package with exposed
thermal pad (suffix LP) that is lead (Pb) free, with 100 percent matte tin lead
frame plating. It is priced at $1.37 in quantities of 1,000.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
