Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. has added to its selection of motor drivers, the company said.
The TC78S122FNG is a multi-configurable bipolar stepping motor driver with a two-channel drive function, enabling it to run two stepping motors independently in a high-voltage, low-power MOS process.
Toshiba´s new TC78S122FNG multi-configurable bipolar stepping motor driver operates at 40V/2.0A maximum.
A high-speed, highly efficient, and multi-stepper or brushed DC motor controllable driver is desirable for use in such applications as printers, surveillance cameras, office automation equipment, banking terminals (including ATMs and banknote identification machines) and home appliances. In parallel, end-product form factor is continually shrinking in response to the trend toward miniaturization, and there´s a growing need to reduce both heat generated within equipment and overall power consumed per unit.
Toshiba America Electronic Components is an independent operating company owned by Toshiba America, Inc., a subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation. Founded in Tokyo in 1875, Toshiba is at the heart of a global network of over 580 consolidated companies employing over 199,000 people worldwide.
