Technical training: How motor drivers reduce design time and complexity


April 29, 2021

How to replace relays with MOSFETS in your H-bridge circuit and use integrated circuit motor drivers to reduce automotive body motor design time and complexity.

Meet our technical experts in this training and discover how TI Motor Drivers reduce design time and complexity by integrating protection features and current sensing into your body electronics. They discuss design challenges in current sense, diagnostics & protection (with power off braking) and how to overcome them with our broad and scalable portfolio.
