Tiny Motor Drivers Streamline Designs, Boost Battery Life
STMicroelectronics

The company’s latest STSPIN single-chip motor drivers are said to be the market’s smallest, measuring in at 3 mm x 3 mm. Saving battery energy, the drivers operate from a supply voltage as low as 1.8V and support power-saving designs with a standby current of less than 80 nA for a zero-power state when the motor is inactive. On the other hand, they can supply up to 1.3 ARMS to drive the motor. STSPIN motor drivers are in production now, in 3mm x 3mm QFN packages, priced from $0.75 for the STSPIN230 and STSPIN240, and $0.95 for the STSPIN220 each/1,000.
