Motor drivers

Brushless DC (BLDC) motor drivers – Applications

Three-phase Brushless-DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) are commonly used in motor applications that require high-speed rotation, reliable operation, quiet spinning, or exceptional power efficiency.

Automotive

TI has a wide range of brushless-DC motor drivers for functional safety and standard automotive applications in body and powertrain. Automotive products are AEC-Q100 qualified,  support a wide temperature, and include a suite of protection and diagnostic features.
