DRV8880: Specs of Driver DVR8880, certification, firmware

Part Number: DRV8880

Hello, please find below my questions:

1.do you please confirm that this product http://www.ti.com/tool/drv8880evm can drive properly a stepper motor that requires 24 V input and 1.8 A? Regarding the current requirement I believe it is possible, but I would like to make sure that we don't have voltage output losses. 

2.We will use an encoder on the motor and we need a pin dedicated for the interrupt from our linear encoder. in that case, could it be PIN 23?

3.Do you provide firmware or do we have to write everything from scratch?

4.Is this product CAN compatible or do we have to use CAN tranceiver?

5.Is this product ROHS, UL and EMC certified?

Thank you in advance. 

  • Hi Aredhel,

    1.do you please confirm that this product www.ti.com/.../drv8880evm can drive properly a stepper motor that requires 24 V input and 1.8 A? Regarding the current requirement I believe it is possible, but I would like to make sure that we don't have voltage output losses.

    >> The dRV8880evm can drive a stepper motor with the specs of 24V input and 1.8A full scale. If holding using non-circular 1/2 step, thermal could be an issue.

    2.We will use an encoder on the motor and we need a pin dedicated for the interrupt from our linear encoder. in that case, could it be PIN 23?

    >> Please explain. Is this pin 23 of the DRV8880 or some other pin? How do you intend to make this connection?

    3.Do you provide firmware or do we have to write everything from scratch?

    >> We do not provide firmware beyond what is available with the EVM.

    4.Is this product CAN compatible or do we have to use CAN tranceiver?

    >> The EVM is not CAN compatible.

    5.Is this product ROHS, UL and EMC certified?

    >> The EVM is ROHS certified.
