Designed for driving low-power single-phase brushless DC (BLDC) fans and motors, the highly integrated AH5795 can provide an average motor current up to 500 mA. Utilising Diodes’ low-profile DFN packaging technology, the AH5795 integrates a high-sensitivity Hall effect sensor, amplifier and an internal H-bridge driver output stage, suitable for single-coil fan motor applications. A PWM speed control pin provides enhanced motor speed control by varying the duty ratio of the PWM signal, in addition to the supply voltage.
The device’s operating voltage range of 1.8 to 6 V caters for low operating voltage BLDC fans requiring low-voltage start-up in both Vdd and PWM speed control modes. Additionally, the AH5795’s bi-directional full-bridge driver uses soft switching to minimize audible switching noise and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
To protect the coil from overheating, the new motor controller includes integrated locked rotor detection and automatic self-restart functions, which serve to shutdown the output driver in the event of a locked rotor and then restart the motor when the rotor is freed. In addition, a tachometer output is provided by an open-drain frequency generator, which allows external speed monitoring. The all-in-one smart motor controller eliminates the need for most of the external components, including a timing capacitor.
The AH5795 has an extended ambient operating temperature range of -40 to 105°C, suitable for thermally demanding applications such as enclosed space in fan motors.
An additional member of the smart fan motor controller family will be launched later in 2011, which includes all of the features and functionality of the AH5795 plus internal timing advance to improve tail-end current, thus enabling further reduction of audible and EMI noise.
Available in space-saving low-profile DFN2020-6 and TSOT23-6 packages, and fully RoHs compliant with Green molding compound, the AH5795 is priced at $US0.30 in quantities of 1k.
