The DRV8436 is a stepper motor driver for industrial and consumer end equipmentapplications. The device is fully integrated with two N-channel power MOSFET H-bridge drivers, amicrostepping indexer, and integrated current sensing. The DRV8436 is capable of driving up to1.1-A rms (dependent on PCB design).

The DRV8436 uses an internal current sense architecture to eliminate the need for twoexternal power sense resistors, saving PCB area and system cost. The device uses an internal PWMcurrent regulation scheme selectable between smart tune, fast, slow and mixed decay options. Smarttune decay technology automatically adjusts for optimal current regulation performance andcompensates for motor variation and aging effects.

A simple STEP/DIR interface allows an external controller to manage the direction andstep rate of the stepper motor. A low-power sleep mode is provided for very low standby quiescentstandby current using a dedicated nSLEEP pin. Protection features are provided for supplyundervoltage, charge pump faults, overcurrent, short circuits, open load, and overtemperature.Fault conditions are indicated by the nFAULT pin.
