600V-rated IPDs offer compact through-hole option for BLDC motor drives

Toshiba Electronics Europe has extended its range of intelligent power devices (IPDs) for brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive applications. The TPD4163K and TPD4164K are suitable for use in pumps, air conditioning, ventilation and fans.

They use a HDIP30 through hole package measuring just 32.8 x 13.5 x 3.525mm. This new package reduces the PCB mounting area by over 20 per cent, when compared to Toshiba’s DIP26 products such as TPD4123x, TPD4144x, and TPD4135x.

The new IPDs are based upon 600V-rated IGBTs and include a matched gate driver in a compact package. The TPD4163K has a maximum DC current (Iout (max)) rating of 1A and the more capable TPD4164K is rated at 2A. IGBT saturation voltage (VCEsat) of the devices is 2.6V and 3.0V respectively and the diode forward voltage (VF) is 2.0V and 2.5V.

The maximum supply voltage rating (VBB(max)) of both devices is now 600V which is particularly useful in locations where mains power is variable or subject to fluctuations.

A reference design showcases the capabilities of the new TPD4164K and TMPM374FWUG microcontroller with vector control engine.

The TPD4163K and TPD4164K are available for volume shipments from today and the reference design board is also fully available.

Toshiba Electronics Europe offers European consumers and businesses a wide variety of hard disk drive (HDD) products and semiconductor solutions for automotive, industrial, IoT, motion control, telecoms, networking, consumer and white goods applications. Next to HDDs, the company’s broad portfolio encompasses power semiconductors and other discrete devices ranging from diodes to logic ICs, optical semiconductors as well as microcontrollers and application specific standard products (ASSPs).

In addition, TEE also offers Toshiba’s SCiB battery cells and modules with lithium titanium oxide (LTO) for heavy-duty applications and Silicon Nitride (SiN) ceramic substrates used in power semiconductor modules, inverters and converters for their heat dissipation characteristics and strength.

TEE has its headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, with branch offices in France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom providing marketing, sales and logistics services.
