H-Bridges for Automotive Applications

H-Bridges for Automotive Applications

STMicroelectronic’s L9960 H-bridges are AEC-Q100 qualified and can be used in resistive and inductive loads for automotive applications. These applications include throttle control actuators or exhaust gas recirculation control valves.

The H-Bridge contains integrated free-wheel diodes. In case of freewheeling condition, the low-side only is switched on to reduce power dissipation. The integrated serial peripheral interface (SPI) makes it possible to adjust device parameters, to control all operating modes and read out diagnostic information.
