Texas Instruments  DRV110APWR

The DRV110 device is a PWM current controller for solenoids. The device is designed toregulate the current with a well-controlled waveform to reduce power dissipation. The solenoidcurrent is ramped up fast to ensure opening of the valve or relay. After initial ramping, thesolenoid current is kept at a peak value to ensure correct operation, after which the current isreduced to a lower hold level to avoid thermal problems and reduce power dissipation.

The peak current duration is set with an external capacitor. The peak and hold levels ofthe current ramp, as well as the PWM frequency, can independently be set with external resistors.External setting resistors can also be omitted if the default values for the correspondingparameters are suitable for the application.

The DRV110 device has an internal Zener diode that limits the supply at VIN toVZENER for applications that require a higher supply voltage. Using theinternal Zener, the DRV110 can be powered from 120-V and 230-V AC supplies through a rectifier andcurrent-limiting resistor. High DC voltages such as 48-V can also be accommodated this way.
