The DRV8350S-EVM is a 15A, 3-phase brushless DC drive stage based on the DRV8350S gate driver and CSD19532Q5B NexFET™ power blocks.
The module has individual DC bus and phase voltage sense as well as an external, individual low-side current shunt amplifier, making this evaluation module ideal for sensorless BLDC algorithms. The module supplies MCU 3.3V and 5V power blocks from a 12 V, 0.35A step down buck regulator. The driver can be configured in split rail and single rail power solutions. The drive stage has IDRIVE configuration, along with a fault pin and protection for short circuit, thermal, shoot-through, and under voltage conditions through configurable SPI. The EVM has an entire USB to MCU environment to program and evaluate the EVM using available trapezoidal drive firmware and GUI.
