About VIPower technology and solutions

Built on VIPower M0-7 technology, the latest series of high-side drivers and DC motor H-bridge drivers from ST offer higher power density, greater accuracy in critical diagnostics, and new protection features. This series covers a wide spectrum of RDS(on) values (1.5 mΩ up to 140 mΩ) and package options, ensuring design scalability. Other features include:

  • Configurable auto-restart or latch-off protection against hazardous conditions
  • Multiplexed analog current sense for load current diagnostic
  • Ultra-low power consumption (0.5 μA standby current max)
  • Ultra-compact Power-SSO packages
  • Extreme low voltage operation for deep cold cranking applications.
  • PWM control up to 20 kHz (motor driver ICs only)
