Texas Instruments DRV8876EVM Driver Evaluation Module (EVM) enables easy evaluation of the DRV8876. The DRV8876 is an integrated H-bridge driver for brushed DC and solenoid applications.

The module enables the device to be configured for phase/enable, PWM, or independent half-bridge control modes. It comprises an MSP430 microcontroller preprogrammed to take input from two dedicated analog potentiometers for PWM speed control of one or two brushed DC motors. The jumper on the PMODE pin enables the user to choose from the input modes of PH/EN (GND), PWM (3.3V), and independent half-bridge control (Hi-Z). Power can be supplied externally up to 37V through the power header.

The device features 4.5V to 37V operating voltage range, 3.5A peak current; configurable control modes, including PH/EN, PWM, and independent half-bridge; and integrated current sense and current regulation.
