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.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
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.
