microsteps with an on-chip indexer.
Bipolar stepper motor drivers: 2.5-A to 5-A peak current options and control interfaces for phase-enable (PH/EN), step/direction with indexer and pulse-width modulation (PWM) control. Supports 1/256 and greater microstepping, along with slow, mixed and fast decay modes, for smooth, quiet, high-resolution motion profiles in applications such as printers, scanners, security cameras, cash handlers, medical equipment and factory automation.
Brushed DC motor drivers: 2.5-A to 5-A peak current options and control interfaces for PH/EN and PWM control. On-chip cycle-by-cycle inrush protection limits start-up and stall currents, protecting the driver and reducing overall system cost in a variety of applications, such as printers, robotics, toys, servo motors, textile manufacturing equipment, solenoid valves and consumer electronics.
Robust, reliable and fully protected: Advanced on-chip protection, including over-current, over-temperature, shoot-through and under-voltage lock-out increases system reliability and manufacturing yields.
Reduce design complexity and time to market: DRV8x motor drivers integrate the gate drive circuitry, MOSFETs, protection circuitry and current regulation circuitry to reduce design complexity, board space and time to market compared to discrete solutions.Upgrade path: Pin-for-pin compatibility with existing DRV8x motor drivers provides flexibility for high or low current.
