DRV8872-Q1: DRV8872DDARQ1 - No Motor Drive with 1uF Capacitor Across Outputs

Part Number: DRV8872-Q1


I am using DRV8872DDARQ1 for motor actuation, we found that one of the motors we are using for the project includes a 1uF capacitor across the outputs.

In this case, the device attempts to drive the motor though does not reach optimal voltage or current to drive the motor.

There is no nFault report.

Once the capacitor is removed the driver works as expected - the motor actuates.

I am just looking for more information on this, there is no output capacitance limit in the datasheet.
