DRV8818 Bipolar Stepper Motor Driver

DRV8818 Bipolar Stepper Motor DriverTexas Instruments' DRV8818 provides an integrated stepper motor driver solution for printers, scanners, and other automated equipment applications. It has two H-bridge drivers and a microstepping indexer logic to control a stepper motor. The output driver block for each consists of N-channel power MOSFETs configured as full H-bridges to drive the motor windings. A simple step/direction interface allows easy interfacing to controller circuits. Pins allow configuration of the motor in full-step, half-step, quarter-step, or eighth-step modes. Decay mode and PWM off time are programmable. Internal shutdown functions are provided for over current protection, short circuit protection, under-voltage lockout and overtemperature.
