INTEGRATED DRIVERS VS. GATE DRIVERS FOR MOTOR DRIVING
When designing a motor control circuit, it is vital to determine how to deliver the high current required to drive the motor. Designers must choose whether to use monolithic integrated circuits that have internal power devices, or gate driver ICs and discrete external power MOSFETs. This article discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each approach and provides guidance on when to choose eit...
DESIGNING A BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRIVER CIRCUIT WITH THE MP6540
MPS recently released an integrated, compact gate driver circuit with six power MOSFETs. This article discusses the MP6540 series, including the MP6540A, MP6540H, and the MP6540HA. The MP6540 is a 3-phase, brushless DC (BLDC) motor driver that integrates three half-bridges consisting of six N-channel power MOSFETs. Conventional motor driver architecture combines a motor driver chip and the power ...
