Toshiba Releases 600V Small Intelligent Power Devices for Brushless DC Motor Drives

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (”Toshiba”) has launched two 600V small intelligent power devices (IPD) for brushless DC motor drive applications such as air conditioners, air cleaners, and pumps. Volume shipments of “TPD4163F” and “TPD4164F,” which have output current (DC) ratings of 1A and 2A, respectively, start today.

Both new products are housed in a surface mount type HSSOP31 package, which reduces the mounting area by approximately 63% against Toshiba’s previous products[1]. This makes smaller motor drive circuit boards possible, and also reduces the height of the motor.
As power supply voltage may fluctuate significantly in regions with unstable power supply, the voltage has been increased from the 500V of Toshiba’s previous products[1] to 600V, which improves reliability.

A “Reference Design for Sensorless Brushless DC Motor Drive Circuit” that utilizes the functions of the new TPD4164F with a TMPM374FWUG microcontroller with vector control engine is available from today on Toshiba’s website.
Toshiba will continue to expand its product line-up for energy-saving motor controls with various packages and improved device characteristics that contribute to design flexibility and carbon neutrality.


- Brushless DC motors for home appliances
- Fan motors (air conditioner, air cleaner, ventilation fan, ceiling fan etc.)
- Pumps

- Small package - Surface mount type HSSOP31: 17.5mm×11.93mm (typ.), t=2.2mm (max)
- High power supply voltage rating to secure operation margin for power supply voltage fluctuations: VBB=600V”
