Notice of commencement of shipping for samples of the MF2001SF industry minimum low input voltage driven IC

Apr. 7, 2017

1. Overview

There has been a recent focus on measures for operation at low input voltages in order to avoid devices being unable to function correctly as a result of drops in battery voltage which occur when an automobile restarts from a cold cranking or idling stop.
The newly developed MF2001SF achieves an industry best low input voltage of 2 V and is compatible with the LV124 cold cranking conditions (battery voltage drop to 3.2 V) established by German automobile manufacturers, allowing devices to operate correctly even when battery voltage drops.
The device is also a high side drive control IPD with built-in Pch high withstand voltage power MOSFET that is also compatible with wide input voltage range of 2 V to 42 V developed using Shindengen's proprietary technologies.

  • LV124 Test case 1 - Cold start

2. Features

  • Achieves the industry's best low voltage input of 2 V
  • Compliant with LV124 cold cranking conditions (drop in battery voltage to 3.2 V)
  • Utilizes a 2 wire latch model which makes it possible to maintain output during cranking
  • Wide input voltage range: DC 2 V to 42 V
  • Safety design: Will not be damaged by adjacent pin shorts, etc.
