Overview

The TIDA-00735 reference design is a 10.8V to 25.2V brushless DC motor controller for high power propeller, fan, and pump applications. It uses the Texas Instruments' DRV8303 brushless DC motor gate driver, CSD17573Q5B 30V NexFET™ power MOSFETs, MSP430 16-bit low power MCU, and TPS70933 30V ultra-low IQ LDO. It controls motor with trapezoidal sensor-less control algorithm and commands the motor speed through an external reference signal from a central controller. This design is focused on demonstrating a highly efficient and high power BLDC motor system.

Features
  • 10.8 V to 25.2 V input voltage range
  • 15 A RMS, 23 A peak output current capability
  • Small form factor (L x W): 2.2” x 1.0” 
  • Speed control with single reference signal
  • Sensor-less trapezoidal control
  • Wide array of system protection features including MOSFET VDS overcurrent and supply under-voltage protection

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
