Tessendello, Belgium, October 28, 2020 – Melexis, a global microelectronics engineering company, announces the MLX 80302, a powerful and cost-effective new motorcycle fuel pump controller to help manufacturers comply with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, Includes Indian BS-6 emission standards.

Melexis Introduces New Cost-Effective Motorcycle Fuel Pump Controller MLX 80302

The MLX 80302 is a three-phase BLDC brushless DC motor controller IC with 2.6 A peak drive capability. This product is suitable for automotive and motorcycle pump applications with a battery voltage of 13 V and power up to 20 W. In addition, it is ideal for a variety of home appliance and industrial pump applications with regulated 24 V power supply up to 30 W.

The controller has a wide junction temperature range: -40°C to +150°C. With a 0.25 ohm half-bridge on-resistance driver, the MLX 80302 provides a powerful monolithic pump controller in a SOIC8 package. This product requires only reverse polarity protection and a decoupling capacitor, making it ideal for integration into pump connectors.

The MLX 80302 has a variety of integrated protection features including locked rotor, thermal protection, overvoltage protection, short circuit protection and current limiting. Motor control operation has been validated for robust operation with remote motor positioning in very noisy environments and has passed a range of tests including BCI as well as ignition coil noise injection. The MLX 80302 has a fast start-up (minimum 50 ms) and is very stable and reliable under both load and no-load conditions.

The MLX 80302 can be programmed via the I2C interface using a graphical interface GUI and all options are configurable via the on-chip EEPROM. With multiple PWM input options to choose from, the product can configure the motor startup process to reach the maximum target speed of the fuel pump in less than 60 ms even under pressure. The MLX 80302 is available in a SOIC8 exposed pad package.

Plug-and-play application and evaluation boards are available that allow the IC to be configured via the I2C interface using a graphical interface GUI.
