The VN9004AJ evaluation board (EV-VN9004AJ) provides an easy way to connect the VN9004AJ single-channel high-side driver into an existing system.
Ready-to-use board enables designers to directly connect the load, power supply and microcontroller without any additional effort for external component design and connection.
A unique electro-thermal simulator that shortens the design cycle by enabling complex engineering evaluation. TwisterSIM includes an interactive selector for finding the suitable HSDs in few clicks based on load compatibility; fault condition impact analysis; diagnostic behavior analysis dynamic thermal performance, and more.
