Power Integrated Circuits for Powertrain Control Modules 951909
This paper describes a series of power ICs designed specifically for powertrain control applications. The series includes low-side drivers and high-side drivers. The drivers are capable of fault detection and reporting to the Micro-Control Unit (MCU). Reported faults include short circuit detection, thermal limit, over-voltage protection, “on” open load detection, and “off” open load detection.
