Part Number: DRV10970EVM
I've searched through the forum but couldn't find a solid answer, so I'm hoping my post is not a duplicate.
I have an application where I currently have a brushed DC motor that I would like to replace with a 3 phase BLDC with hall sensors. Specs are as follows:
- Automotive application (12v DC, range 11-5v)
- PWM speed control of the current motor, would like to reuse that signal for the BLDC
- Current draw of the brushed motor is about 2A max. Expecting the BLDC will be lower (just guessing here)
- BLDC is a 42BLF01, 17vDC Nom, no load speed of 10,000rpm, rated torque=0.063 N-m, back EMF constant=1.79 V/kRPM
My question is: I'm looking at DRV10970EVM but not sure it's the right eval board to prove out the replacement motor. Do you have suggestions for the right board? My goal is to A) prove out the replacement motor, and B) use it as a reference circuit design for manufacutring.
Thank you in advance for the help!
Yes, DRV10970EVM is a good choice for checking out the conversion from BDC motor to sensored BLDC motor. Current peak capability is 1.5A, but as you said the BLDC should consume less current than your BDC solution.
Note, however, that DRV10970 is not automotive qualified.
Best of luck,
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

No our team doesn't have an auto qualified version of a hall sensor BLDC motor driver at this time.
