MIKROE DC Motor 6 Click

DC Motor 6 Click is a PWM chopper type brushed DC motor driver, labeled as TB67H451FNG. This IC includes one channel of motor output block, using a wide range of supply voltages, while delivering reasonably high current to the connected DC motors. Low ON-resistance MOSFETs and a PWM control help the TB67H451FNG exhibit lower heat generation thus efficient motor drive. Furthermore, the TB67H451FNG has two inputs, IN1 and IN2, which allow for selection of the four operation modes; forward (clockwise), reverse (counter-clockwise), short brake, and stop modes.

DC Motor 6 Click board™ is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development.

The main component of DC MOTOR 6 Click is the TB67H451FNG, a PWM chopper-type brushed DC motor driver, produced by Toshiba. This IC uses a proprietary BiCD manufacturing process, allowing this IC to be powered by a wide range of supply voltages, from 4.5 up to 44V. Due to a very low ON resistance of the MOSFETs, it can theoretically deliver up to 3A of current to the connected load. However, many external parameters affect both the maximum voltage and the current specifications, especially when the connected load is of a complex nature, such as the DC motor. In using TB67H451FNG, the voltage should be applied to the pins of VM and VREF. The absolute maximum rating of VM supply voltage is 50V (no active). The usage range is 4.5 to 44V. The absolute maximum rating of VREF supply voltage is 5V. The usage range is 0 to 4V.

There are no special procedures of inputting a power supply and shutdown because the TB67H451FNG incorporates the under voltage lockout (UVLO). However, under the unstable state of inputting the power supply (VM) and shutdown (transient area), setting the motor operation to OFF state is recommended. After the power supply is in the stable state, the motor should be operated by switching the input signal.The absolute maximum rating of motor output current is 3.5A. Its operating range is 3A or less. The maximum current of the actual usage is limited depending on the usage conditions (the ambient temperature, the wiring pattern of the board, the radiation path, and the exciting design). Configure the most appropriate current value after calculating the heat and evaluating the board under the operating environment.

This IC controls a motor operation by PWM constant current control. The peak current value (setting current value) can be determined by settings of the current-sensing resistor (R2) and the reference voltage (Vref). When both IN1 and IN2 pins are set to L for 1 ms (typ.) or more, the operation mode enters into the standby mode. When IN1 or IN2 is set to H, the mode returns from the standby mode, and enters to the operation mode.

The tBLK is intended to avoid inrush current detection. The TB67H451FNG not only can be controlled by constant current PWM, but also by direct PWM; with IN control signals.

When the supply voltage to VM pin is 3.8V or less, the internal circuit is triggered; the internal reset circuit then turns off the output transistors. Once the UVLO is triggered, it can be cleared by reasserting the VM supply voltage to 4.0V or more (typ.)
