Reference Design

A system-level evaluation board that combines ROHM's IC and discrete products. We have already solved not only the characteristics of individual products but also the problems that may occur when combining them to build a system, thus contributing significantly to the reduction of development time for our customers.

Evaluation Kit for Automotive 2-Channel Half-Bridge Gate Driver IC


The ROHM BD16950EFV-C is an AEC-Q100 automotive qualified 2-channel Half-Bridge Gate Driver IC, suitable for DC motor drive in Automotive applications such as Power Window Lifter, Sunroof Module, Wiper, Seat belt tensioner, Seat positioning etc.
This EVK enables the performance evaluation of this IC in research and development laboratories.


  • Plug & Play DC Motor Evaluation Kit
  • No need for device driver installation for GUI application, it recognizes the board as Human Interface Device
  • Single Power Supply with Reverse Polarity Protection
  • Power supply for on Board Logic from LDO or USB
  • Discrete H-Bridge FETs with high current capability
  • Test pins for easy signal monitoring
