DRV8301-69M-KIT: Current sense amplifier

Part Number: DRV8301-69M-KIT
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DRV8301, , MOTORWARE

Hello TI,

We are working on DRV8301-69M-KIT with 28069F MCU. This EVM board support three external current sensing amplifier and DRV8301 have two current sense amplifier in-built. 

All motorware projects are using only the external current sensing amplifier. Can we bypass the external sensing and using the in-built current sensing from DRV8301.


  • Yes, you can. But you need to change the ADC configuration and reading functions in hal.c and hal.h, and also need to change the USER_ADC_FULL_SCALE_CURRENT_A in user.h according to the gain of the DRV8301.

    And you have to set the USER_NUM_CURRENT_SENSORS as below in user.h 

    #define USER_NUM_CURRENT_SENSORS            (2)
