Dialog Semiconductor announced the release of the SLG47105, its first motor drive CMIC that delivers the benefits of both configurable logic and configurable analog with high-voltage outputs.
The motor drive CMIC joins Dialog's GreenPAK product family.
SLG47105 is able to drive two brushed DC motors; a single stepper motor; solenoid or any other load requiring up to 1.5A RMS current per output; and has an operating voltage up to 13.2V.
In addition, it allows users to customize protection and motor control scheme with current or voltage regulation, stall detection or soft motor start to enable higher system reliability and more efficient battery usage.
An internal voltage reference, power-on reset, an oscillator, and pulse width modulators account for its low power consumption functions. Standby mode, which accounts for the current consumption for the entire chip, is as low as 70nA. This assists with a longer battery life.
"Adding high voltage capabilities to our GreenPAK product family opens up huge opportunities within the motor field," said vice president of marketing of Dialog's configurable mixed-signal business unit John McDonald, in a press release. "With already close to 5 billion CMICs shipped, this new product will further accelerate GreenPAK adoption across a wider range of applications incorporating brushed and stepped motors, from industrial to consumer appliances and the smart home."
Dialog also announced they will be releasing an update for the GreenPAK Designer software package.
