The DRV8718S-Q1 evaluation module (EVM) allows easy evaluation of the DRV8718S-Q1 device.

The DRV8718S-Q1 is 8-channel Gate Driver with inline current sensing and offline diagnostics. The DRV8718S-Q1 devices can be powered with a supply voltage from 4.9 to 37 V. A smart gate drive architecture optimizes dead time to prevent shoot-through conditions, controls slew rate. Four PWM inputs can be multiplexed between the different drivers in combination with SPI control. The current sensing amplifier can be used in low-side or high-side sense configurations. A simple SPI and Hardware interface are available.

For more information on this evaluation module please refer to the DRV8718S-Q1EVM User's Guide.

  • 4.9-V to 37-V operating voltage range
  • 8 channel smart multi-stage gate driver
  • 4 PWM inputs with output mapping
  • 2x wide common mode current shunt amplifiers
  • SPI and H/W multiple interface options available
