The DRV103 is a low-side DMOS power switch employing a pulse-width modulated (PWM) output. Its rugged design is optimized for driving electromechanical devices such as valves, solenoids, relays, actuators, motors, and positioners. The DRV103 is also ideal for driving thermal devices such as heaters, coolers, and lamps. PWM operation conserves power and reduces heat rise, resulting in higher reliability. In addition, adjustable PWM allows fine control of the power delivered to the load. DC-to-PWM output delay time and oscillator frequency are also externally adjustable.
