Keywords:alternator? regulator? OTP?

Freescale's family of LIN alternator regulator family of devices is specially designed to work in adverse environments. It supplies a current through a high side MOSFET to the excitation coil of the alternator and provides an internal freewheeling diode. It's main functionality is to keep the battery at its nominal value, whatever the vehicle demand. The protection and diagnosis may be programmed using OTP (non-volatile Memory).

Additionally, these devices have a fail-safe mode for continuous battery charging in the event LIN is disconnected.

Basic functionality for LIN alternator regulators is provided in this application note. This document also tackles the devices' detailed description for practical applications. Parameters are available by fuse providing product alignment with your application profile.
