Description

The MAX22203 is a dual 65V, 3.8AMAX H-Bridge with PWM inputs and accurate Current Drive Regulation (CDR). Each H-Bridge can be controlled individually and has a very low typical RON (high-side + low-side) of 0.3Ω, resulting in high driving efficiency and low heat generation. The MAX22203 can be used to drive two Brushed DC motors or a single Stepper Motor.

The integrated CDR can limit the start up or stall the current of a Brushed DC motor or control the phase current for stepper operation.

The bridge output current is sensed by a non-dissipative Integrated Current Sensing (ICS) eliminating the bulky external power resistors (which are normally required for this function) and compared with a configurable threshold current (ITRIP). The ITRIP threshold can be set independently for the two full bridges by connecting the external resistors to pins REFA and REFB .

The maximum output current per H-Bridge is IMAX = 3.8A and is limited by the Overcurrent Protection (OCP) circuit. This current can be driven for very short transients and is aimed to effectively drive small capacitive loads. The maximum user-configurable current regulation threshold is ITRIP_MAX = 3A. The maximum RMS current (IRMS) per H-Bridge is 2ARMS on a standard JEDEC 4-layer board. The maximum RMS current can be limited by thermal considerations and depends on the thermal characteristic of the application (PCB ground planes, heat sinks, forced air ventilation, etc).

The MAX22203 features Overcurrent Protection (OCP), Thermal Shutdown (TSD), and Undervoltage Lockout (UVLO). An open-drain active low nFAULT pin is activated every time a fault condition is detected. During Thermal Shutdown and Undervoltage Lockout, the driver is tristated until normal operations are restored.

The MAX22203 is packaged into a small TQFN38 5mm x 7mm package.
