San Jose, California – November 20, 2007 – Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) brings automotive control system designers more reliable solenoid control operation using less board space with the FDMS2380, a new Dual Integrated Solenoid Driver (DISD) solution. The FDMS2380 is an intelligent, dual independent channel, low-side driver with built-in recirculation and demagnetization circuits designed specifically for driving inductive loads. Other integrated features include over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature circuits to protect the device as well as a diagnostics feedback pin. The FDMS2380 is packaged in a space-saving 8mm x 12mm PQFN package.

Using a multi-die approach, Fairchild’s FDMS2380 integrates multiple control and power semiconductor die into a single, space-efficient package, delivering a highly reliable and compact design solution that is optimized for automotive and industrial solenoid applications. 

Key Features of the FDMS2380:

  • Independent dual channels in PQFN packaging provides greater functionality in less board space than competing single channel and discrete solutions.
  • Diagnostic signal provides enhanced fault handling and protection.
  • Built-in over-current, over-voltage, over-temperature diagnostics prevent device failure.
  • Extended operating voltage handles the automotive power bus without additional protection.
Fairchild’s unique capabilities in advanced process and packaging technologies, as well as its ability to integrate power analog, power discrete and optoelectronic functionality into innovative packaging, enable Fairchild to develop energy efficient solutions for the automotive electronics market. Fairchild offers the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of products, from 1W to >1200W, to maximize energy efficiency in today’s automotive electronic applications such as power management, body control, motor control, ignition and engine management, and electric and hybrid electric vehicle systems.

The FDMS2380 utilizes lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union's Directive on the restriction of the use of certain substances (RoHS).
