Diodes – Motor Driver from Diodes Incorporated Makes Smarter Cooling Systems

For system flexibility, the motor speed can be controlled by an external PWM signal and temperature sensed by Thermal resister at the same time. Based on external input PWM and temperature signals, the AM4964 adjusts the output PWM duty cycle. If the input PWM duty is constant, the output PWM duty varies with temperature sensed by Thermal resister sensor between the low and high temperature corners. If the temperature signal is constant, the output duty varies with the external input PWM duty. The low and high temperature corners and the output PWM duty gap between these temperature corners are adjustable.

To help protect the motor coil, the AM4964 provides a rotor lock protection which shuts down the output if rotor lock is detected. The device automatically re-starts when the rotor lock is removed.

AM4964 provides a tachometer output Frequency Generator (FG). The FG output is the magnetic change frequency.

The AM4964 is available in TSSOP-20EP package.
