Toshiba announces new HV-IPD for Sine-Wave motor control
Published: 22 May 2015 - Marianne Evans
Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a new high voltage intelligent power device (HV-IPD) that enables the Sine-Wave control of brushless DC (BLDC) electric motors. The TPD4204F will find use in a range of low power industrial fans and pumps as well as white goods including washing machine, dishwashers and fan units.
Rated to 600V and 2.5A the TPD4204F features six MOSFETs and a driver IC in a multi-chip configuration. The device is housed in a 30 pin SMD-type package (SOP30) that separates all small signal pins from the power pins and measures just 20mm x 11mm x 2mm.
The TPD4204F provides over-current, over temperature and under voltage protection and can be combined with either MCUs or MCDs.
