DRV8837EVM: 1.8A H-Bridge, 1.8 ~ 11V In


The DRV8837EVM is a complete solution for evaluating the DRV8837 low voltage brushed DC motor driver. It includes a MSP430 microcontroller that is pre-programmed to take input from an analog potentiometer, for PWM speed control, and a direction jumper, to change motor direction.

Power can be provided with the included micro-USB cable for 5V or externally provided up to 11V through the power header. To expand beyond the included firmware capability the MSP430 can easily be re-programmed via an external MSP430 USB Stick Development Tool available at

Unused pins on the micro-processor are brought out to plated-through holes on the EVM.
