H-Bridge
Half-bridge When two transistors are connected in a totem-pole arrangement as shown below, they are said to be in a halfbridge configuration. By turning each transistor on and off in a complimentary fashion, the half-bridge can drive the load
voltage alternately high and low to produce a PWM waveform at the motor terminal.

With a half-bridge power structure, you must make sure


that the bottom transistor and the top transistor NEVER
get turned on at the same time.
Doing so will result in large currents flowing through the
transistor pair, as a short is created across the DC bus.
This condition is called shoot-through.

Critical Points:
The H-Bridge / motor driver amplifies the control signals to the proper voltage
and current level required to drive the motor.
Applied motor voltage may be PWMed (chopped) or continuous.

PWMing is a very efficient way to apply a voltage

Asynchronous Decay:
Recirculation current Free Wheels through the body diodes. Power loss = I x 2VD

Synchronous Decay:
Recirculation current flows through the FETs
.Power loss = I2 x (2xRDSON) and is typically lower than Asynchronous decay.
There are several types of synchronous decay modes: Fast, Slow, and Mixed

Mixed Decay Mode: The best of Both?

Critical Points:
Mixed decay: % of the decay cycle is fast decay followed by slow decay
Fast and slow decay ratio may be programmable depending on the driver
Mixed decay is ideally suited for micro-stepping
Current Mode Profiles

Stepper Winding Current

Current Recirculation: Fast Decay Mode

Current flowing through the motor winding will be working against


the full supply voltage, plus two diode drops.

Current decays quickly.

Current Recirculation: Slow Decay Mode

Current re-circulates through power MOSFETs presenting a resistive


path to the current
Current decays slower (directly proportional to the LR)

Fast Decay ( DC Motor Stop )

Phase Current

Enable Signal
Phase Voltage

Mixed Decay Mode: The best of Both?

The idea behind mixed decay mode is to provide faster decay than slow, but
slower than fast.
FET switching is coordinated so that Fast Decay mode is engaged for a fixed
period of time, followed by slow decay mode
Mixed decay mode is necessary for reliable micro-stepping

Protection Circuits

Current Regulation
Why do you need Current Regulation?
Stepper Motors:
Winding resistance is very low
Very little back EMF
Maintain holding current
Brushed / Brushless DC:
Needed to limit stall / start up currents

Understanding TBLANK (DRV88xx)


False itrip

TBLANK

TBLANK

TBLANK
ITRIP

Critical Points:
At the beginning of each PWM cycle, a TBLANK period is inserted to filter out spurious
current spikes present as parasitic capacitances are charged, preventing false trips.
TBLANK varies depending on the part (~ 1.2 to 3.75us) and on some devices it can be
configured by the selection of external components

IOCP

TIME
TOCP

Designed to protect the device from damage in the event of a fault in the motor or wiring,
such as a short to ground, power, or across the winding.

Each power FET is protected individually, so protected against shorts to any other signal

Protection must be quick enough to prevent damage but not trigger on false trips. Body
diodes must be robust enough to handle shorts.

Can be a latched or auto-recovery. Some devices alert the system MCU via a Fault pin
on an OCP event.

Analog Ilimit

Critical Points:

Analog OCP implementation (high side shown)

Two analog components of OCP:


- An analog current limit removes gate drive to the power FET to prevent very high
currents from damaging the device (ILIMIT)
- An overcurrent detection circuit monitors the current and provides an overcurrent
signal to the digital core if the current exceeds IOCP

Current Regulation Example


Using current control with a DC brushed motor can allow you to limit
the high starting current, and use a motor driver IC that is rated for less
current than the stall current of the motor

Temperature

Multiple thermal sensors are placed across the die, continuously


monitoring temperature. When temperature reaches over temp,
the H Bridge is tri-stated.

Fault can be latched or auto-recovery. Some devices alert the system MCU
via a fault pin on an over temp event.

Some devices have 2-stage thermal protection, providing a warning (fault


flag) prior to shutting the device down.

Undervoltage/Cross Conduction Protection

Undervoltage protection
Supply voltage level is constantly monitored and the device is tri-stated when the
voltage level is too low to ensure proper control over the H-Bridge

Shoot-through Protection
High side and low side are never allowed to turn on at the same time. A small amount
of delay (dead time) is inserted after turning off the high side and turning on the low
side. The longer the dead-time, the safer the operation but the worse the linearity and
efficiency.
