4W1-2 Phase Excitation/Micro-step Support
A3957SLB
Allegro MicroSystems product
2-Phase Stepper Motor Bipolar Driver IC
sFeatures
q
Maximum output ratings: 50V,
±1.5A
q
Internal 4-bit non-linear DAC for 16-division
microstepping enables 4W1-2, 2W1-2, W1-
2, 2-phase excitation drive without exter-
nal sine wave generator
q
Internal PWM current control in Mixed De-
cay mode (can also be used in Fast Decay
and Slow Decay mode), which improves
motor current response and stability with-
out deterioration of motor iron loss
q
External RC filter for sense terminal not
required thanks to internal blanking circuitry
q
Internal thermal shutdown, crossover-cur-
rent protection and transient-suppression
diodes
q
Special power-up and power-down se-
quencing for motor supply and logic sup-
ply not required
q
Employs copper batwing lead frame with
low thermal resistance

qOutput
current rating may be limited by duty cycle, ambient temperature, and heat sinking. Under any
set of conditions, do not exceed the specified current rating or a junction temperature of 150°C.
Note 1: When ambient temperature is 25°C or over, derate using
−17.86mW/°C.
Note 2: Fault conditions where junction temperature (T
j
) exceeds 150°C will activate the device’s thermal
shutdown circuitry. These conditions can be tolerated but should be avoided.
