    Design insights: motor control in battery powered products and Key MOSFET parameters Steven Waterhouse & Sami Ould-ahmed

    DC motors come in different types, sizes & power requirements they are optimised according to the targeted application.   

    3 phase Brushless DC (BLDC) allows precision speed control and improved drive efficiency for industrial applications, Motors used require smaller magnets allowing for smaller and lighter end solutions.

    BLDC controllers for High power motors may use several MOSFETs in parallel, and high Power Battery packs used to drive these Motors require special consideration for charge and discharge to ensure safe operation, these topics are all discussed in this and subsequent sessions.

    Technology insight : MOSFETs for use in high continuous current applications Steven Waterhouse & Sami Ould-ahmed

    Many high power applications require a MOSFET to operate at very high continuous current for normal operation and/or expected fault conditions.   

    Nexperia MOSFETs show how high continuous current such as 380A in 5x6mm & 425A in 8x8mm can be achieved with LFPAK package as opposed to other packages such wire-bond where the limits are much lower.

    Limiting factors such as thermal, PCBs and layout will be discussed. We will also discuss what defines continuous, and how it applies in real life applications.

    Technology insight: Parallel multiple MOSFETs using optimized current sharing technology Steven Waterhouse & Stein Nesbakk

    In High Power Applications, such as Motor Control, one MOSFET may not be enough – hence paralleling MOSFETs becomes a necessary solution. To achieve a reliable design that shares and stresses the devices equally, it is common to request semiconductor manufacturers to provide parts with matched threshold voltages.

    However, even with very tightly controlled production facilities there is an inevitable spread in the threshold voltage across the wafer. Any effort to provide matched Vth will require special screening and sorting that can result in yield loss, thus affecting the cost of the devices supplied.

    Nexperia have developed a new and unique MOSFET with improved current sharing capability when used in parallel which no longer relies on matched threshold voltages. These MOSFETs will be discussed in detail with test results shared and discussion for benefits this technology provides.
