Industrial 

Brushless-DC drivers for industrial applications are designed to offer a highly efficient, small, and protected solution. Products range from integrated FET drivers for low- to mid-current applications up to Smart Gate Drivers enabling multi-kW motor drive  systems.  In addition, our Brushless-DC portfolio offers integrated control drivers.

  • Efficiency: Low RDS(on) provide great thermal performance and low losses with ultra-low sleep current
  • Small size: our portfolio of smart gate driver products integrate passive components to reduce board size, design complexity and cost with device options to integrate DC/DC regulators, Current Sense Amplifiers, integrated FETs, control and more into a single-chip motor driver solution for smallest size
  • Protection: Fully protected from Undervoltage Lockout (UVLO), Charge Pump Undervoltage (CPUV), MOSFET Overcurrent Protection (OCP), Gate Driver Fault (GDF), Thermal Warning and Shutdown (OTW/OTSD) with a Fault Condition Indicator (nFAULT).
