A possible reason could be that one of the control voltages IN1 or IN2 was applied prior to the main supply voltage.
Question: Is this a known phenomena and if affimative can the chip be protected bij series resistors in the IN1 and IN2 inputs?
Thank you in advance for your reaction

I have visited and posted to these forums many times with great success for help with the XMC4500 so I figured I would try to get some help here for some hardware.
I have the BTS432E2 "ProFET" and I am hoping to drive both(not at the same time) 12V and 24V proportional valves for a body controller I am developing. Using the XMC4500(Relax Lite Kit) I have a microcontroller outputting PWM voltage signals, and I want to connect these to the ProFET in order to drive my proportional valves (0 to 1.2A).
My problem is when I try to apply voltage to the ProFET I receive no output. Following the datasheet my connections are as follows:
Pin 1: GND (Connected to XMC4500 Breakout so GND is common)
Pin 2: PWM Output from XMC4500
Pin 3: +12V (Bench Power supply rated up to 3A)
Pin 4: Voltage Meter to troubleshoot for now (Plan to connect to XMC4500 for feedback)
Pin 5: Proportional valve terminal
The other proportional valve terminal is connected to ground.
I have used these valves numerous times and they work flawlessly when adjusting current on bench supply, but they draw no current in my current configuration with the ProFET. Is the signal from the XMC to low, requiring a gate driver?
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Our company was acquired IGBT modules FZ1200R12KF5 to set the frequency converter Siemens SIMOVERT MASTER DRIVE but we suspect that these modules are fake. Is it possible to independently determine the authenticity of modules FZ1200R12KF5?
Thank you. Show Less
I am working on a mechanical sculpture that uses a bunch of motors to turn small mirrors back and forth.
Each motor draws at most 0.5A at 12V.
I've been able to build a circuit to drive 36 of these motors, using 36 TLE5206 ICs, each configured exactly like the Application Circuit in Figure 5, page 14 of the datasheet (100uF cap between Vs and GND, close to the driver), and being driven by PWM signals.
It works fine most of the time.
But.... I've fried a couple of the TLE5206 ICs in this test setup, where I end up with a short between Vs and GND, but haven't been able to determine why.
And now I want to build a matrix that has 100 (maybe 200) of these TLE5206 circuits, to drive 100 (maybe 200) motors.
Is there something I need to worry about when I start putting many of these drivers in parallel across the same power supply signals?
They'll each have their own 100uF cap, and no more than 10 of these motors will be turned on at a time (and rarely at full speed).
Thanks in advance ! Show Less
setting up a H-Bridge by using BTS7960B Drivers.
If you have a look at the Data sheet 6.1 Application Example.
Do i shorten the Load in case of enabling both INH pins?

Could you suggest a circuit to isolate BTS5215L from microcontoller using optocoupler?
Any suggestion to protect BTS5215L from reverse battery when battery is conncted reveresed ?
Thank you inadvanced . Show Less
Both inputs are High for free-wheeling, and to move, one input PWM's low. I am able to move the motor while ramping my PWM values very gently, but after a short bit of use, the TLE5206 will short its input to ground, causing my fused 5A power trace to burn.
My actuator will run quite happily from my 5A benchtop power supply, so I doubt it draws more than 5A on initial start.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I need to do? run 2 bridges in parallel?
Thank you for your assistance. Show Less
- For our project we are modifying the reference design of MPPT solar charger (http://www.cypress.com/?rID=39126)
- Our plan is to include a UART module to serially transmitt the parameters monitored to an external data logger.
- The available resources in the current design is not enough to include a UART module, so we have to modify it
- Two digital block are needed for UART module in the current design one digital block is free
Following are the design modification we have in mind.....
1.In the design there are four LEDs used for displaying the current status of the battery. we thought of disabling the LEDs which would free two more digital blocks (which are used as PWM for driving those LEDs) and take out the LEDS from the board and connect some wires in its and use those pins for serial outputs.(which we feel a bit awkward)
2. There are two pins ISSP_SCK_1_1(connected to P1_0) and ISSP_SDATA_1_0(P1_1), we thought of using these pins for the RXD and TXD. Can this pin be multiplexed as ISSP while programming and as RXD and TXD while execution?? is that possible?.. This seems quite decent since we can use the available MOLEX pin out in the board which is used for programming
3.Another option would be to use the pins used for OCD(on chip debugging) for pins are used. Is it possible to route the signals from the UART block to these pins??
We are uncertain about the feasibilty of the modifications 2 & 3. So we are kindly expecting your suggestions.
Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.
