Infineon Technologies has introduced the MOTIX TLE9140EQW gate driver IC for brushless DC motors targeting the demanding 24/48V market. The TLE9140 is tailored for automotive motor control applications featuring higher voltage requirements from 24V up to a maximum of 72V, where higher system reliability and faster switching behavior are necessary.

The MOTIX TLE9140EQW is the ideal complement to Infineon’s MOTIX MCU TLE987x and TLE989x 32-bit motor control SoC solutions but is also suitable as a 48V BLDC driver with common MCUs on the market. Typical applications include pumps and fans, windshield wipers, the HVAC module, or e-compressors.

In addition, the TLE9140 is applied as 3-phase motor gate driver for applications in commercial, construction, and agricultural vehicles as well as in light electric vehicles such as eBikes, eScooters, or eMotorcycles.
