product of Advanced Silicon.
The MTS2916A motor driver is a CMOS device
capable of driving both windings of a bipolar stepper
motor or bidirectionally control two DC motors. Each of
the two independent H-bridge outputs is capable of
sustaining 40V and delivering up to 750 mA of
continuous current. The output current level is
controlled by an internal pulse-width modulation
(PWM) circuit that is configured using two logic inputs,
a current sense resistor and a selectable reference
voltage. The H-bridge outputs have been optimized to
provide a low output saturation voltage drop.
Full, half, and micro-stepping operations are possible
with the PWM current control and logic inputs. The
maximum output current is set by a sensing resistor
and a user selectable reference voltage. The output
current limit is selected using two logic level inputs. The
selectable output current limits are 0%, 33%, 67%, or
100% of the maximum output current. Each bridge has
a PHASE input signal which is used to control the direc-
tion of current flow through the H-bridge and the load.
The H-bridge power stage is controlled by non-overlap-
ping signals which prevent current cross conduction
when switching the direction of the current flow. Internal
clamp diodes protect against inductive transients.
Thermal protection circuitry disables the outputs when
the junction temperature exceeds the safe operating
limit. No special power-up sequencing is required.
Undervoltage Lockout circuitry prevents the chip from
operating when the load supply is applied prior to the
The device is supplied in a 24-pin SOP package.
