Pocatello, Idaho - AMI Semiconductor's AMIS-30621 is a microstepping motor driver for remote and multiple-axis positioning applications such as those involved in automotive headlamp leveling and swiveling, cruise control and idle control. Marketed as the first single-chip device for local interconnect networks, it integrates bus connection, positioning electronics and the motor-driving stage in a single SOP-20 package. AMI says the device will provide better electromagnetic-compatibility performance than solutions with centrally placed drivers. It's priced at $2.20 each in lots of 10,000. Evaluation boards are available on request.
