BridgeSwitch BLDC Motor-Driver IC Family Expands to 400 W

February 25th, 2020

Power Integrations announced that its BridgeSwitch integrated half-bridge (IHB) motor-driver IC family has been expanded and now supports applications requiring up to 400 W. BridgeSwitch ICs feature high- and low-side advanced FREDFETs (Fast Recovery Diode Field Effect Transistors) with integrated lossless current sensing, resulting in inverter efficiency of up to 99.2% in brushless DC (BLDC) motor-drive applications. This industry-leading efficiency performance, along with the distributed thermal footprint provided by the IHB driver, eliminates the need for a heatsink, reducing both system cost and weight.
