DRV8840EVM: DC Motor Driver with Brake


The DRV8840 evaluation module consists of a 5.0A, single-H-bridge motor driver with a Phase/Enable control interface and a small number external components that can be used to drive a single brushed DC motor.

The on-board MSP430 MCU + software/GUI provides signaling and control and supports PWM speed control. With the DRV8840EVM, designers can quickly and easily evaluate the performance of DRV8840 motor driver in their specific application.
