The DRV8210 is an integrated motor driver with four N-channel power FETs, charge pump regulator, and protection circuitry. The tripler charge pump architecture allows the device to operate down to 1.65 V to accommodate 1.8-V supply rails and low-battery conditions. The charge pump integrates all capacitors to reduce the overall solution size of the motor driver on a PCB and allows for 100% duty cycle operation.

The DRV8210 supports multiple control interface modes including: PWM (IN1/IN2), phase/enable (PH/EN), independent half-bridge, and parallel half-bridge. Each interface supports a low-power sleep mode to achieve ultra-low quiescent current draw by shutting down most of the internal circuitry.

The device can supply up to 1.76-A peak output current. It operates with a supply voltage from 1.65 V to 5.5 V.

The driver offers robust internal protection features include supply undervoltage lockout (UVLO), output overcurrent (OCP), and device overtemperature (TSD).

The DRV8210 is part of a family of devices which come in pin-to-pin scalable RDS(on) and supply voltage options to support various loads and supply rails with minimal design changes. See Section 5 for information on the devices in this family. View our full portfolio of brushed motor drivers on
