App note: Driving solenoids in automotive applications

App note from Nexperia about various solenoid driver used in automotive. Link here (PDF) There are a wide variety of solenoid drive circuit topologies. Most of them use MOSFETs in various configurations and driving modes. In this application note four of them will be discussed: solenoid driver with free-wheeling diode, solenoid driver with MOSFET avalanching, […]
