SLIS170 December 2015 TPIC2010
The discontinuous regulation mode on the DC-DC converter improves efficiency at low power consumption significantly. The spindle motor driver uses BEMF feedback for startup, control, and low-noise operation without needing external sensors. In addition, the TPIC2010 has many protection features including: spindle output current limiting, thermal shutdown, sled and collimator lens end detection, actuator protection, and power-reset circuit. The TPIC2010 also has a built-in thermometer for easy IC temperature measurement.
