NXP PCA9629 Fm+ I2C-Bus Stepper Motor Controller

NXP PCA9629 Fm+ I2C-Bus Stepper Motor Controllers

NXP's PCA9629 Fm+ I2C-Bus Stepper Motor Controllers are I2C-bus controlled low-power CMOS devices that provide all the logic and control required to drive a four phase stepper motor. PCA9629 is intended to be used with external high current drivers to drive the motor coils. Three stepper motor drive formats are supported: one-phase (wave drive), two-phase, and half-step. In addition, when used as inputs, four General Purpose Input/Outputs (GPIOs) allow sensing of logic level output from optical interrupter modules and generate active LOW interrupt signal on the INT pin of PCA9629. This is a useful feature in sensing home position of motor shaft or reference for step pulses. Upon interrupt, the PCA9629 can be programmed to automatically stop the motor or reverse the direction of rotation of motor.

  • Generate motor coil drive phase sequence signals with four outputs for use with external high current drivers to off-load CPU
  • Four balanced push-pull type outputs capable of sinking 25mA or sourcing 25mA for glueless connection to external high current drivers needed to drive motor coils
  • Up to 1000pF loads with 100ns rise and fall times
  • Built-in oscillator requires no external components
  • Stepper motor drive control logic
  • One-phase (wave drive), two-phase, and half-step drive format logic level outputs
  • Programmable step rate: 344.8kpps to 0.3pps with ±5% accuracy
  • Programmable ramp-up on start and ramp-down to stop
  • Programmable steps and rotation control
  • Sensor enabled drive control: linked to interrupt from I/O pins
  • Direction control of motor shaft
  • Selectable active hold, power off or released states for motor shaft
  • Four general purpose I/Os:
