A4934: Three-Phase Sensorless Fan Driver

Description

This device is no longer in production. The device should not be purchased for new design applications. Samples are no longer available. Date of status change: October 31, 2011.

Recommended Substitutions: For existing customer transition, and for new customers or new applications, refer to the A4941.

The A4934 three-phase motor driver incorporates BEMF sensing to eliminate the requirement for Hall sensors in fan applications.

A pulse wave modulated (PWM) input is provided to control motor speed, allowing system cost savings by eliminating external variable power supply. PWM input can also be used as an on/off switch to disable motor operation and place the IC into a low power standby mode.

The A4934 soft switching settings are designed for lower inductance or lower speed motors. For higher inductance or higher speed motors consider using the pin-compatible A4941.
