A3909: Dual Full Bridge Motor Driver

Description

The A3909 is a dual full bridge motor driver, designed for 12 V medium power applications. The outputs are rated for operation through a power supply range of 4 to 18 V, and capable of up to 1 A per phase.

Paralleling the outputs is possible for higher amperage single DC motor applications.

The four inputs (IN1 to IN4) can control DC motors in forward, reverse, brake, and coast modes, or a bipolar stepper motor in full- and half-step modes.

The A3909 is supplied in a 10-pin MSOP package with exposed thermal pad (suffix LY) and a 10-pin SSOP (suffix LN) for wave solder applications. Both packages are lead (Pb) free with 100% matte tin leadframe plating.
