Internal synchronous rectification provides lower power dissipation during PWM operation. Other internal circuit protection includes over-current protection (OCP), motor lead short-to-ground or short-to-supply protection, thermal shutdown with hysteresis, under-voltage monitoring of VBB, and crossover current protection.
The A4950 is targeted at the office automation, industrial and consumer markets. It is provided in an 8L SOICN package with exposed thermal pad (Suffix LJ) for enhanced thermal dissipation.
