The MPQ6533 is a gate driver IC designed for automotive DC motor driver applications. The device drives six N-channel power MOSFETs to drive DC motors or other loads.
The device integrates a low-dropout (LDO) regulator to generate gate drive voltages for the low-side MOSFETs (LS-FETs). The device also provides a charge pump that generates a voltage to drive an external N-channel MOSFET for reverse-battery protection. The high-side gate drive is generated by the bootstrap capacitors and an internal charge pump, which allows for 100% duty cycle operation. An internal amplifier measures the voltage drop across the LS-FETs. This allows the current to be measured without using shunt resistors.
Internal safety features include configurable over-current protection (OCP), adjustable dead time control, under-voltage lockout (UVLO), and thermal shutdown. The MPQ6533 is available in a QFN-32 (5mmx5mm) package with an exposed thermal pad.
