    Fabricated with a new process, TPD4162F reduces power dissipation about 10% [1] lower than that of Toshibas current IPD, TPD4152Fwhich will help to lower the power dissipation of devices into which it is integrated.
  • This supports direct drive of a brushless DC motor with square wave input signals from either a Hall sensor or a Hall IC without requiring a PWM controller IC.
  • Use of a small surface mount package, HSSOP31, can help reduce the size and height of motor control boards.
