TOKYO-June 28, 2013-(BUSINESS WIRE/ ME NewsWire)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced it has launched a full-bridge DC motor driver IC, 'TB67H301FTG', for use in consumer and industrial equipment, including printers, vending machines and amusement machines. Mass production starts today.
The IC incorporates a standby function that realizes zero power supply current in standby mode. It adopts a small, leadless WQFN24 package that reduces the mounting area to 1/3 that of equivalent products, contributing the downsizing of the equipment and the reduction of PCB cost.
Features 1. Built-in power saving function
Newly integrated shutdown circuit cuts current to zero in standby mode.
2. Small package
The WQFN24 package has good thermal conductivity and realizes the same absolute maximum ratings for voltage and current value as equivalent products. The small and leadless package reduces the mounting area.
3. Built-in abnormality detection function
TB67H301FTG incorporates an overcurrent shutdown circuit, undervoltage lockout circuit and thermal shutdown circuit.
