Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) introduced what it asserts is the industry’s first seven-channel, NMOS low-side driver. The TPL7407L is positioned to replace half of the transistor arrays required to drive high current loads, providing a new option for high voltage systems. Reducing power by 40 percent, according to the company this new device efficiently drives the LED matrix, relay or stepper motor in high-voltage applications, such as white goods, building automation, lighting and HVAC. Features of the TPL7407L include:
- High drain current: With 600 mA per channel, the TPL7407L offers 20 percent better drain current to drive higher power, according to the company reducing the number of relay drivers required per board.
- Pin-to-pin compatibility with traditional arrays: Replacing existing arrays with this power-efficient device eases system design and frees power budget.
- Full temperature range: Tested and compatible with the full -40C to 125C temperature range for harsh environments within industrial, automotive and telecommunications applications.
