Texas Instruments  DRV10987DPWPR

The DRV10987 device is a 3-phase sensorless 180° sinusodial motor driver with integratedpower MOSFETs, which can provide continuous drive current up to 2 A. The device is specificallydesigned for cost-sensitive, low-noise, low-external-component-count fan and pumpapplications.

The DRV10987 device delivers current to the motor with supply voltage as low as 6.2 V. Ifthe power supply voltage is higher than 28 V, the device stops driving the motor and protects theDRV10987 circuitry.

The DRV10987 device uses a proprietary sensorless control scheme to provide continuoussinusoidal drive, which significantly reduces the pure tone acoustics that typically occur as aresult of commutation. The interface to the device is designed to be simple and flexible. The motorcan be controlled directly through PWM, analog, or I2C inputs. Motorspeed feedback is available through both the FG pin and the I2Cinterface simultaneously.

The DRV10987 device features an integrated buck regulator to step down the supply voltageefficiently to 5 V for powering both internal and external circuits. The 3.3-V LDO also may be usedto provide power for external circuits. The standby-mode (8.5 mA) version (DRV10987S) leaves theregulator running, and the sleep-mode (48 µA) version (DRV10987D) shuts the regulator off.Throughout this data sheet, the DRV10987 part number is used for both devices, that is, DRV10987D(sleep version) and DRV10987S (standby version), except for specific discussions of sleep vsstandby functionality.

An I2C interface allows the user to reprogram specific motorparameters in registers and to program the EEPROM to help optimize the performance for a givenapplication. The DRV10987 device is available in a thermally-efficient HTSSOP, 24-pin package withan exposed thermal pad. The operating ambient temperature is specified from –40°C to 125°C.
