TLE7241 Current Regulating Solenoid Driver
Never Stop Thinking
This new device from Infineon is a self-contained IC for controlling solenoid valves. The TLE7241 addresses the challenging control requirements of proportional control solenoid valves often used in hydraulic controls.

Each device contains 2 independent channels capable of regulating current from 0 to 1 Amp with 1.2mA resolution. Each channel provides a current accuracy of ±2% over the full operating range (temp, voltage). The device also offers the capability of superimposing a triangular dither waveform to reduce mechanical friction effects of the valve.

Multiple protection and diagnostic features are included in order to meet stringent system level failure management requirements.

Control module component count and microcontroller software complexity are both reduced when using this device compared to a "roll your own" solution using discrete devices.
