|A4963 Three-Phase Sensorless BLDC Controller - Allegro's A4963 is a sensorless BLDC MOSFET gate driver scalable for a wide range of motor currents and applications. EEPROM programmable start, as well as run and control parameters allow operation with a wide range of motors and loads. PWM duty input permits simple input for the internal closed loop speed control that can eliminate the need or complexity for an external MCU.
|A8590 Buck Regulator - The A8590 from Allegro MicroSystems is similar to the A8580, but it adds enhanced low dropout operation. When maximum duty cycle is reached (low VIN/VOUT ratio, e.g. during idle stop) the A8590 automatically switches at FSW/4 until VIN rises again. Also, the A8590 increases the output current to 3.0 A (compared to 2.5 A for the A8580 and A8589).
|A8585 Automotive, Wide Input Voltage, Low Standby Current, 2 A Output Buck Regulator - The A8585 is designed to provide the power supply requirements of next-generation car audio and infotainment systems. The A8585 is a variant of the A8580, but with lower IQ, better EMI performance, lower pin count, fixed VOUT (5 V/3.3 V options), options for selectable or auto-switchover of the PWM to PFM mode, and an option for selectable enable/sleep mode.
|Evaluation Boards for Designs - Allegro understands that fast-paced design cycles demand powerful, system-level solutions today. Whether engineers' state-of-the-art design requirements are in motor drivers and controls, power management, or Hall-effect sensor ICs, they can depend on Allegro to supply the latest tools and technology that will simplify designs and reduce time to market. With this in mind, Allegro has developed the Allegro Product Evaluation Kit (APEK) to assist customers during the design process. Within Allegro’s kits are the specific tools (hardware and software) that will help projects be completed quickly and easily.
