Press Release Summary:
Model FAN8200 2-channel drive IC is manufactured using bipolar process. Integrated dual H-bridge drivers with vertical PNP power transistors result in low saturation voltage (0.4V @ 0.4A) and optimum thermal characteristics (Vcc = 2.5V ~ 7.0V). Unit features built-in shoot-through current protection and thermal shutdown (TSD) function. FAN8200 accommodates 3.3 or 5V MPU control input, and provides independent chip enable input for each bridge.

LOW-COST stepping motor Drive IC delivers high-efficiency performance in low-voltage, two-phase drive applications
San Jose, Calif.-January 10, 2002- Fairchild Semiconductor International (NYSE:FCS) introduces the FAN8200, a two-channel drive IC ideal for two-phase stepping motor drive system applications including cameras (PC and digital), disk drives, thermal printers, and motion controllers. Manufactured using an improved bipolar process, the performance of the FAN8200 is equal to or better than popular, more costly competitive devices. The FAN8200 features integrated dual H-bridge drivers with vertical PNP power transistors resulting in low saturation voltage (0.4V @ 0.4A) and optimum thermal characteristics for high-efficiency operation over a wide supply voltage range (Vcc = 2.5V ~ 7.0V). In addition, the device features built-in shoot-through current protection to minimize spikes on the power supply and a thermal shutdown (TSD) function. The FAN8200 accommodates either 3.3V or 5V MPU control input and provides an independent chip enable input for each bridge, allowing the device to also be applied as a low-voltage, general-purpose power driver.
Fairchild's stepping motor drive IC portfolio continues to expand to cover a wide voltage range and various package configurations. The FAN8200, with a maximum rating of 1W, is offered in a thru-hole, 14-pin DIP-300 package. The surface-mount version of the device, the FAN8200D, is rated at 600mW and is offered in a 14-pin SOP-225 package. Both versions are rated for operation over -20 to +75°C. (Upon special request, a 14-pin TSSOP package also is available.) Contact your local sales representative for ordering requirements.
