Product description

The MLX92214 is a Hall-effect latch bringing a robust but cost-sensitive solution for DC/BLDC motor control, specially adapted for power tools, PCs, servers and home appliance applications:

The MLX92214 is the best fit for Hall replacement, saving space by simplifying the overall design and reducing the number of external components on the PCB.

The MLX92214 comes pre-programmed, which, in addition to its design for a standalone PCB, will minimize the effort of the integration in the module.

Lateral sensing with integrated IMC for DC/BLDC motor applications

Application

As brushless DC (BLDC) motors become an increasingly popular choice for many applications including blowers, cooling fans and pumps, more sophisticated control is required. By integrating an IMC into products, such as the MLX92211 IC, surface mount sensing is available, thereby simplifying the production process and reducing the space required.
