The new product adopts an SSOP16 package while offering the same features as the “TC78B002FTG,” already in mass-production, allowing customers to apply low-cost solder flow assembly. This allows manufacturers to bring down production costs by using single-layer PCBs instead of high cost double-layer PCBs.

The "TC78B002" series incorporates an original digital control circuit that realizes sinusoidal control of the motor current, improving motor efficiency while reducing noise.
