2.2A single-coil fan and pump driver - MLX90412-automotive

Product description

The MLX90412-L is a dedicated automotive, all-in-one single-coil fan and pump driver IC, with a peak driving capability of 2.2 A, suited for air pump, water pump, axial fans, radial blower and cross blower applications.

Operating on a voltage ranging from 3.5 V to 32 V, and robust up to 40 V, the MLX90412 is well suited for any fan, blower or pump applications operating on 12 V and 24 V board nets.

The MLX90412-L (Automotive) is AECQ100 certified and can be applied on the automotive battery without additional protections, and survives load dump pulses up to 40 V. The operating junction temperature ranges from -40 °C to 150 °C. Typical applications include seat blower fans, battery cooling fan, DCDC converter cooling pump or -fan as well as HV inverter (IGBT/SIC cooling).

The MLX90412-K (IT/Appliances/Industrial) can be found here.

The MLX90412 features several commutation control options, optimised for either lowest acoustic noise and vibration (sinewave), or highest efficiency(1/16), or lowest EMI(Flat).

The patented adaptive control algorithm ensures optimal operation with the lowest reverse current, over the full speed range independent of the motor inductance or applied lead angle. MLX90412 Automotive

Both open loop and closed loop speed control is possible, with a wide range of dynamic (PI) settings. Its closed loop speed control can also be leveraged as no-load or run-dry protection in pump applications, avoiding running pumps at excessive speeds, with consequent high audible noise, and early failure.

The optional I2C interface for EE configuration, allows fast prototyping and end-of-line programming for customizing the MLX90412 for a wide range of applications, including a wide range of start up configurations, electrical lead angle, max speed settings, wave shaping etc..

In combination with the low acoustic noise current shaping, the MLX90412 offers unprecedented acoustic noise/vibration performance, making it a cost-effective alternative for applications which were previously considered exclusive to more expensive 3-phase solutions.
