The SN754410 is a quadruple high-current half-H driver designed to provide bidirectional
drive currents up to 1 A at voltages from 4.5 V to 36 V. The device is designed to drive inductive
loads such as relays, solenoids, DC and bipolar stepping motors, as well as other
high-current/high-voltage loads in positive-supply applications.
All inputs are compatible with TTL-and low-level CMOS logic. Each output (Y) is a
complete totem-pole driver with a Darlington transistor sink and a pseudo-Darlington source.
Drivers are enabled in pairs with drivers 1 and 2 enabled by 1,2EN and drivers 3 and 4 enabled by
3,4EN. When an enable input is high, the associated drivers are enabled and their outputs become
active and in phase with their inputs. When the enable input is low, those drivers are disabled and
their outputs are off and in a high-impedance state. With the proper data inputs, each pair of
drivers form a full-H (or bridge) reversible drive suitable for solenoid or motor
A separate supply voltage (VCC1) is provided for the logic input
circuits to minimize device power dissipation. Supply voltage VCC2 is used
for the output circuits.
The SN754410 is designed for operation from −40°C to 85°C.
