The DRV8833C provides a dual-bridge motor driver solution for toys, printers, and other mechatronic applications.

The device has two H-bridges and can drive two DC brushed motors, a bipolar stepper motor, solenoids, or other inductive loads.

Each H-bridge output consists of a pair of N-channel and P-channel MOSFETs, with circuitry that regulates the winding current. With proper PCB design, each H-bridge of the DRV8833C can drive up to 700-mA RMS (or DC) continuously, at 25°C with a VM supply of 5 V. The device can support peak currents of up to 1 A per bridge. Current capability is reduced slightly at lower VM voltages.

Internal shutdown functions with a fault output pin are provided for overcurrent protection, short-circuit protection, UVLO, and overtemperature. A low-power sleep mode is also provided.

Hardware development

document-generic User guide

The DRV8833CEVM (evaluation module) serves as a user-friendly evaluation kit to demonstrate TI's low-voltage dual H-bridge motor driver, DRV8833C, driving stepper motors. A MSP430G2553 is used to control the speed of the motor and current levels.

  •  Operates from 4 to 10.8V
  •  Drives one stepper motor in full- or half-step mode
  •  Multiple full-scale current options on-board
  •  Set full-scale current via jumpers (200mA, 400mA or 600mA options).
