The DRV880x devices are integrated motor driver solutions for brushed DC motors. The devices integrate a DMOS H-bridge, protection circuitry, and simple digital interface. The devices can be powered with a supply voltage between 8 and 36 V and are capable of providing an output current up to 2.8 A.
A PHASE-ENABLE interface allows for easy interfacing to the controller circuit. The PHASE input controls the direction of the H-bridge and the ENABLE input specifies whether the H-bridge is enabled or not.
Two MODE pins allow for specifying which current decay method the device utilizes. MODE1 specifies between fast decay or slow decay and MODE2 specifies between high side or low side slow decay.
The DRV8801 provides the option to monitor the motor winding current through a proportional voltage output.
