Overview

The TIDA-00261-BOOST-DRV8711 is an 8-52V, 4.5A, bipolar stepper motor drive stage based on the DRV8711 Stepper Motor Pre-driver and CSD88537ND Dual N-Channel NexFET™ Power MOSFET. The module contains everything needed to drive many different kinds of bipolar stepper motors and can also be repurposed as a dual brushed DC motor driver. The BOOST-DRV8711 is ideal for those wishing to learn more about stepper motor control techniques and drive stage design. This kit was designed to be compatible with all TI LaunchPads following the LaunchPad Pinout Standard, with primary software/firmware support being provided for the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad with a MSP430G2553.
