The DRV8718-Q1 and DRV8714-Q1 support a highly configurable Half-Bridge Control Scheme in order to be adapted for a wide variety of output load configurations and control regulations. This control scheme helps to reduce the number of required PWM channels and pins from the external controller. 4 independent PWM control inputs can be provided to the INx input pins and assigned to any of the output half-bridge drivers. The device internally handles the dead-time generation between high-side and low-side switching so that a single PWM input can be used to control a half-bridge.
Additionally the DRV8714-Q1 supports several other standard control schemes for either H-bridge or solenoid control. These control schemes can be selected through the BRG_MODE register setting on SPI interface devices or MODE pin on H/W interface devices as shown in Table 8-2
