Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation, (AKM), has developed a motor driver, the AP1010AEN, capable of operation with a single 18 V power supply. The AP1010AEN is ideal for 12 V systems such as home equipment, (e.g. opening/closing water heater valves), and white goods household appliances, (e.g. refrigerators and ice machines). Since operating temperature of the overvoltage protection circuit and operating current of the overcurrent protection are optimized, the AP1010AEN can have a circuit configuration that removes a fuse from the motor’s power supply line while keeping motor operation safe. The AP1010AEN is capable of driving two DC motors, or one stepping motor.
