2.5 A Integrated Sensored BLDC Motor Controller Reference Design


Design files


The TIDA-00827 is an integrated, sensored BLDC motor controller reference design suitable for low-powered, battery operated, brushless DC motor applications. An 8- to 35-V operating voltage range supports 3S to 6S LiPo battery supplies. Specific applications include camera gimbals, low power fans and robotics. The motor controller is composed of the MSP430G2353 16-bit, ultra-low-power microcontroller and the DRV8313 highly integrated, 2.5 A triple half-bridge driver. The MSP430G2353 utilizes Hall sensor-based commutation feedback to provide the correct drive voltages to the motor through the DRV8313. An onboard potentiometer and push button provide a simple interface to control the motor.

  • 8- to 35-V operating voltage range
  • 2.5-A peak output current capability
  • Small form factor: 2.0” x 1.0” (L x W)
  • Sensored BLDC motor control through MSP430 microcontroller
  • Integrated current limiting comparator
  • Integrated undervoltage, overtemperature, and overcurrent protection
