Stepper Motor Driver for bipolar Stepper Motors in
Automotive Applications like Light Levelling,
Bending Light and Throttle Control.
The device is an integrated stepper motor driver
for bipolar stepper motors with microstepping and
programmable current profile look-up-table to
allow a flexible adaptation of the stepper motor
characteristics and intended operating conditions.
It is possible to use different current profiles
depending on target criteria: audible noise,
vibrations, rotation speed or torque. The decay
mode used in PWM-current control circuit can be
programmed to slow-, fast-, mixed-and auto-
decay. In autodecay mode device will use slow
decay mode if the current for the next step will
increase and the fast decay or mixed decay mode
if the current will decrease.
Junction Temp range, °C
-40 to 150
