HVC 2480B, a high-voltage controller for use in automotive and industrial applications, features advanced integration which reduces the number of required external components to a minimum, enabling compact and cost-effective system designs. The product’s flexible peripherals allow control of both brush-type and brushless DC (BLDC) motors. Three fully integrated half-bridges are capable of delivering a maximum current of 600mA, ideal for compact motor designs. For higher power requirements the device’s six enhanced PWM outputs can be configured to drive external MOSFET power transistors.
We were pleased to collaborate on the design of the HVC 2480B smart actuator controller not only because of its top-notch level of integration but also because of its built-in flexibility in enabling various motor applications and commutation schemes” says Mr. Guido Schmid, Division Manager RC Motion Control of PMDM. “Together with Micronas, we offer a first-class solution that consigns alternative discrete solutions to the past.
Having such an insightful partner like PMDM-Minebea was determinant in the successful development of the HVC 2480B smart actuator controller” says Mr. Dirk Behrens, Vice President Automotive at Micronas. “This is a significant milestone for both companies and a testimony of their commitment towards product design and engineering excellence.
