THine Releases an Industry-first Motor Driver with LVDS Input/Output

TOKYO--()--THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI today announced an industry-first* motor driver product, THM3561, with input/output of LVDS or Low Voltage Differential Signaling. The sample of THM3561 will be available in January, 2015.

The new feature with LVDS input/output achieves superior noise tolerance and high-speed data transmission for long distance. Since THine also has LED driver line-ups with LVDS input/output, this brand-new motor driver can be used jointly with THine’s LED drivers by cascade connection or multi-drop connection.

Moreover, several THM3561 can be connected only by two pair cables and every control can be achieved. This feature also contributes to reduce the number of cables, wiring spaces, and costs, accelerating time-to-markets. For example, a cascade connection of THM3561 products in every 3 meters allows complicated controls of 30 motors with long-distance data transmission for approximately 100 meters only by two pair cables. The application is large machine tools, factory automation and robotics, large motor control systems for long-distance, motor drivers of robotics or humanoid robots such as those with 30 finger-joints of both hands.

THM3561 also has serial interface to transmit sensor output signals of position detection to controllers. Spread of IoT brings numerous sensors and THM3561 can drive motors according to the output signal from sensors, reducing the parts counts drastically. In addition, THM3561 can drive 4-channel electromechanical solenoids with greater force and quick response.
