MCT8316Z: Motor lock detection functionality

Part Number: MCT8316Z
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DRV8307, DRV10987


I am trying to find an alternative to the MCT8316Z .

The motor lock detection and the adjustment of the parameters like 'motor lock detection time' with SPI of the MCT8316Z  is the most important feature for our client and I wanted to ask if there is any other device which has the same motor lock detection feature also with adjustable parameters?

Kind Regards


  • Hi Alex,

    DRV8307 is a sensored trapezoidal gate driver with lock detection, however it does not have any configurability.

    DRV10987 is a sensorless sine integrated MOSFET driver and has lock detection configured through I2C.

    Can you provide more inputs on the customer requirements? Supply voltage, motor current, lock detection parameters, etc?



  • Hi Matt 

    Unfortunately I do not have more inputs on the requirements.

    But I think for now its enough to know that we have the DRV10987 as an alternative which I will suggest to the customer and then hopefully get more details on the requirements.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Kind Regards
