5-Phase Stepper Motor Driver ICs (Pentagon Connection)
The 5-phase stepper motor supports various driving systems
and the motor connection varies depending on the driving sys-
Use of the motor with some driving systems may be restricted
by patents. Therefore, be sure to ask the motor manufacturer
about the motor connection and driving system to be used.
The driver (SLA5011/SLA6503) dissipation varies depending on
a driving system used even if the output currents (control cur-
rent) are the same. Therefore, measure the temperature rise of
the driver under the actual operating conditions to determine
the size of the heatsink.
Figure E shows an SLA5011/SLA6503 derating curve. This de-
rating curve indicates T
=150°C; however, when using this de-
vice, allow sufficient margin when selecting a heatsink so that
(AI FIN temperature on the back of the SLA) is ob-
