DRV425-Q1: What is the difference between DRV425 and DRV425-Q1?

Part Number: DRV425-Q1

Both parts have temp ratings between -40C and +125C, but are there any differences in terms of pin layout/footprint? What are the main differences in the parts? Is it just that Q1 has been approved for automotive applications?

  • Usman,

    Hello and thank you for this question.  The Q1 has a different layout and footprint that include the 4 corner pads.  Only the Q1 has been approved for automotive applications and gone through the automotive qualification process.  

    The functionality are the same but like all devices please refer to the datasheet for specifications of each version.  For these two parts I think the specifications are very similar if not the same but that is not always the case and I am going off of memory.  The datasheet will be the ultimate resource.  

    Please let me know if you have any other questions I can assist with.
