Melexis MLX83100 Automotive Two-Phase DC Pre-Driver is an IC with an integrated current sense amplifier. This device is used to drive brushed DC motors in combination with a microcontroller and four discrete power N-FETs. The driver controls four external N-FETs for full H-bridge control in the supply range from 4.5V to 28V. Melexis LX83100 Automotive Two-Phase DC Pre-Driver includes various monitoring and protection functions and gate-source voltage monitoring of the external N-FETs. The MLX83100 provides an EEPROM for configure-ability, avoiding the need for a high pin-count package. Applications include water pumps, fuel pumps, engine cooling fans, wipers, sunroofs, blowers, and compressors.
