MCD Chips are Reusable from Project to Project

MCD ChipToshiba is the world's 5th largest semiconductor company1 and a leading, worldwide supplier of motor driver and motor controller technology to the industry's top companies in office automation, industrial equipment, consumer and home appliance and battery-powered applications. Toshiba develops long-term, strategic relationships with its customers by providing motor driver products that are exceptionally versatile, power efficient and robust.

Toshiba develops its motor controller and driver ICs in its leading-edge BiCMOS and BiCD (Bipolar+CMOS+DMOS) processes. The BiCD process combines the analog advantages of bipolar devices with the digital and low-power consumption benefits of MOSFETs, as well as the high-power capabilities of DMOS devices.

New Toshiba Small-size DC Motor Driver ICs Reduce Power Consumption in Automotive Electronics

The devices are fabricated in a fine-pitch BiCD process and offer low ON resistance to support the power requirements of small motors used in the electronic systems of new automobiles for applications such as air-conditioner valves, door mirrors and windows.
