The VM pin should be bypassed to ground using a low-ESR ceramic bypass capacitor with a recommended value of 0.1 µF rated for VM. This capacitor should be placed as close to the VM pin as possible with a thick trace or ground-plane connection to the GND pin of the device. The VM pin must also be bypassed to ground using a bulk capacitor rated for VM. This capacitor can be electrolytic and must be at least 10 µF.
A low-ESR ceramic capacitor must be placed between the CPL and CPH pins. A value of 0.1 µF rated for VM is recommended. Place this capacitor as close to the pins as possible. A low-ESR ceramic capacitor must be placed in between the VM and VCP pins. A value of 1 µF rated for 16 V is recommended. Place this component as close to the pins as possible.
Bypass the AVDD and DVDD pins to ground with ceramic capacitors rated for 6.3 V. Place these bypassing capacitors as close to the pins as possible.
Use separate traces to connect the SP and SN pins to the R(SENSE) resistor.
