Manufacturer of Semiconductors that are used in Power supplies for products like cell phone chargers, set-top boxes to industrial controls. Fairchild is now part of ON Semiconductor
The lighting is moving from power hungry incandescent bulbs to fluorescent, LED or HID lamps. Fairchild Semiconductors have designs for Lighting applications too.
This motion Smart Power Module SPM evaluation board is designed to evaluate Fairchild Semiconductor’s SPM3V2_V4 and SPM45H SPM families of parts.
The motion SPM is installed as the motor power module on the evaluation board to drive a three-phase AC Induction Motor (ACIM), Brushless DC (BLDC) motor, Brushless AC (BLAC) motor, or Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). A Switched-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) is integrated into the design, along with the necessary bulk capacitors and microcontroller (MCU) interface circuitry.
Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc. was an American semiconductor company based in San Jose, California. Founded in 1957 as a division of Fairchild Camera and Instrument, it became a pioneer in the manufacturing of transistors and of integrated circuits. Schlumberger bought the firm in 1979 and sold it to National Semiconductor in 1987; Fairchild was spun off as an independent company again in 1997.
