Toshiba Corporation has rolled out the TB62269FTAG, a bipolar stepping motor driver offering a 40V high voltage and 1.8A current.

High speed, high performance motor drives are required for applications including 3D printers, office automation equipment, banking terminals such as ATMs, banknote identification machines, amusement machines, and home appliances. In parallel, the downsizing of equipment is being accelerated by customer demand for space-saving equipment with excellent design. Measures to reduce products’ internal heat and power consumption are also growing in importance.

The TB62269FTAG has a QFN32 package, smaller than the QFN48 package housing Toshiba’s current product, TB62269FTG. This size reduction will contribute to space saving on the PCB.

Mass production starts at the end of this month.
