Versatile power driver solutions feature two independent half-bridge drivers
Mouser now stocks the Texas Instruments DRV8816, a dual half-bridge motor
driver providing a versatile power driver solution with two independent ½-H
Suitable for applications such as printers, industrial automation, robotics
and motorized levers, the devices can drive one brushed DC motor or one
winding of a stepper motor, as well as other devices like solenoids.
A simple INx/ENx interface allows easy interfacing to controller circuits.
The output stages use N-channel power MOSFETs configured as ½-H-bridges. The
DRV8816 is capable of peak output currents up to ±2.8A and operating
voltages up to 38V. An internal charge pump generates needed gate drive
voltages. A low-power sleep mode is provided which shuts down internal
circuitry to achieve very-low quiescent current draw. This sleep mode can be
set using a dedicated nSLEEP pin.
