REFMOT101 - Reference Design

12V supply, 3 Hall Sensor, Three Phase Brushless DC motor drive Reference Deisgn

This design consists of a three-hole sensor three-phase brushless DC motor pre-driver and a MOSFET. It is an evaluation board that can drive a brushless DC motor with a supply voltage of 12V (typ) and a motor current of 6A (max) by adding a speed control circuit using a microcontroller to the 3 Hall sensor 3-phase brushless DC motor drive circuit. It requires only one external power supply. When a Hall IC is used, the logic IC can detect the direction of rotation and output a triple multiplier FG.

  • 3 Hole Sensor Three Phase Brushless DC Motor Pre-Driver and Output MOS P+N Configuration
  • Supply voltage 12V(typ)
  • Output current 6A(max)
  • PWM drive with 120 degree commutation.
  • Rotation direction switching, short braking function
  • Rotation direction detection output, triple FG output possible (when Hall IC is used)
  • Speed control by MCU is possible.
