Fairchild Semiconductor's Motion-SPM(TM) in 29mm x 12mm SMD Packaging Optimizes Energy Efficiency and Board Space in Low-Power Inverter Motor Designs.Especially Ideal for Speeding the Design and Manufacturing of Dishwasher Motor and Water Pump Applications
SOUTH PORTLAND, Me. -- Enhancing its portfolio of Smart Power Modules (SPM SPM - Sequential Parlog Machine [TM]), Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange :FCS FCS - Frame Check Sequence ) introduces the FSB (FrontSide Bus) See system bus.
FSB - front side bus 50325S (250V), FSB50250S (500V) and FSB50450S (500V), three new Motion-SPM[TM] devices available in 29mm x 12mm surface-mount-device (SMD (1) (Storage Module Device) A high-performance hard disk interface used with minis and mainframes that transfers data in the 1-4 MBytes/sec range (SMD-E provides highest rate). See hard disk. ) packages. The Motion-SPM in SMD enables designers to achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency, compactness and low electromagnetic interference (EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference) An electrical disturbance in a system due to natural phenomena, low-frequency waves from electromechanical devices or high-frequency waves (RFI) from chips and other electronic devices. Allowable limits are governed by the FCC. ) required by small (50-125W) inverter motor drive applications such as water pumps, dishwasher motors and fan motors. By virtue of their high amount of integration and advanced packaging, these modules also dramatically simplify designs, speed time to market and reduce total system cost.
"Designers of dishwasher inverter motors must contend with stringent energy-efficiency requirements as well as limited PCB PCB: see polychlorinated biphenyl.

"Fairchild's new Motion-SPM in SMD packaging improves system power efficiency by providing a high isolation voltage rating of 1500Vrms for one minute and excellent thermal resistance. In addition, their ultra-small-footprint package is ideally suited for these space-constrained applications; and because these are surface-mount devices, they further reduce space and ease design complexity by allowing the designer to utilize the backside of the PCB where the module is mounted. Additionally, the SMD-packaged Motion-SPM allows PCB manufacturers to use standard automated assembly line processes to speed design cycle time and reduce manufacturing costs."
Each Motion-SPM integrates six fast-recovery MOSFETs (FRFET[TM]) and three half-bridge high-voltage ICs (HVIC HVIC High-Voltage Integrated Circuit ) into one thermally efficient package. Utilizing Fairchild's innovative technologies, these integrated components result in low-loss and low EMI characteristics that improve efficiency and reliability in the application. By employing a MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) The most popular and widely used type of field effect transistor (see FET). MOSFETs are either NMOS (n-channel) or PMOS (p-channel) transistors, which are fabricated as individually packaged as the device's power switch, the Motion-SPM also provides better system ruggedness and a larger safe operating area For power semiconductor device (such as BJT, MOSFET, thyristor or IGBT) a safe operating area (SOA) is defined as the voltage and current conditions over which the device can be expected to operate without self-damage.

Compared to discrete approaches, these highly integrated modules not only offer significant space savings, they also eliminate the time-consuming task of testing and qualifying multiple discrete components.
The Motion-SPM in SMD packaging enhances Fairchild's existing line of Motion-SPM products. Designers now have the option to choose the most appropriate package, an SMD or Tiny-DIP (dual in-line package See DIP.
(hardware) Dual In-Line Package - (DIL, DIP) The most common type of package for small and medium scale integrated circuits, with up to about 48 pins. The pins hang vertically from the two long edges of the rectangular package, spaced at intervals of 0.1 inch. ). This packaging flexibility allows designers to choose the optimum device for their specific motor application requirements.
