Tokyo, June 7, 2022 – Hitachi Energy Semiconductor Gadget, Ltd. (HPSD) has developed two Excessive-Voltage Motor Driver ICs primarily for room air-conditioners. The only-chip IC merchandise ‘ECN30216’ & ‘ECN30624’ are capable of tolerate massive variation of provide voltage. Each merchandise possess the perform of shutting down all of the output gadgets when overvoltage is detected within the motor drive state and thereby achieves the withstanding voltage of 1,000V. ‘ECN30216’ is especially for the fan-motors used for in-room models of air-conditioners, and ‘ECN30624’ is principally for these of exterior models. The merchandise are to be shipped out as of Jun. 2022. By offering these merchandise, HPSD will globally help the energy-efficiency/energy-saving of dwelling home equipment together with room air-conditioners as a way to contribute to realizing Carbon-Free Society.

A Excessive-Voltage Motor Driver IC is a kind of parts mounted on an inverter management board which retains correct operation of motors put in in dwelling home equipment equivalent to room air-conditioners or air-cleaners, and is indispensable energy semiconductor system for extremely environment friendly, energy-saving dwelling home equipment. Then again, in some areas the place fast enhance of demand for inverter air-conditioners is anticipated, it’s required to develop the facility semiconductor gadgets which bear sizable fluctuation of energy provide voltage.

This time, HPSD has developed the Excessive-Voltage Motor Driver IC having the withstanding voltage of 1000V which is realized by implementing the perform to disable all of the output gadgets which provide the driving energy to the motor upon detecting extreme energy provide voltage within the motor drive state. As well as, distinctive design of latest higher arm*1 drive circuit has made it potential to incorporate the capacitor inside the motive force IC, eliminating two exterior capacitors required for standard such merchandise, and thereby saving area to enhance buyer’s freedom of designing motor or inverter management board for dwelling home equipment.


Excessive aspect energy semiconductor system of an inverter circuit.

HPSD has equipped its energy electronics merchandise for Mobility utility equivalent to Traction, and EV thus far, however is accelerating its growth actions of the merchandise having excessive environmental values for the conclusion of Carbon-Free Society. The corporate will proceed to contribute to actualizing Carbon-Free Society by means of creating and offering the facility semiconductor gadgets that assist reduce down the facility consumption, and CO2 emission.
