- 2 Channel Half-Bridge Gate Driver Setup Guide
The BD16950EFV is an AEC-Q100 automotive qualified 2-channel Half-Bridge Gate Driver, controlled by an external MCU through a 16-bit Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). Independent control of low-side and high-side N-MOSFETS allows for several MCU controlled modes. A programmable drive current is available to adjust slew-rates, in order to meet EMI and power dissipation requirements. Diagnostics can be read and reset by an external MCU.
This Evaluation Board consists of the Automotive 2-channel Half-Bridge Driver IC and USB cable. Also a GUI can be provided for easy SPI register configuration. Besides this motor driver IC the evaluation board contains all external components necessary for operation including a full bridge created by discrete FETs, an LDO for logic supply, SPI interface and various test points for signal monitoring.
