The AH5775 is a single chip solution for driving single-coil brushless direct current (BLDC) fans and motors. The integrated full-bridge driver output stage uses soft switching to minimize audible switching noise and electromagnetic interference (EMI) providing a low noise solution.
To simplify system circuit and minimize external components, the device integrates a stable high sensitivity Hall-Effect sensor, voltage and temperature compensated internal references, amplifiers and the output H-bridge power switches with low RDSON.
To help protect the motor coil, the AH5775 provides Rotor Lock Protection which shuts down the output drive if rotor lock is detected. The device automatically re-starts when the rotor lock is removed. In case of over voltage, the device shuts down the output drive and enters standby mode to help prevent over voltage stress on the coil. Over temperature shutdown provides thermal protection for the device.
The AH5775 is available in TO94 package.
