  • The NCV70521 is a micro-stepping stepper motor driver for bipolar stepper motors. The chip is connected through I/O pins and an SPI interface with an external microcontroller. The NCV70521 contains a current-translation table and takes the next micro-step depending on the clock signal on the NXT input pin and the status of the DIR (direction) register or input pin. The chip provides a so-called Speed and Load Angle output. This allows the creation of stall detection algorithms and control loops based on load-angle to adjust torque and speed. It uses a proprietary PWM algorithm for reliable current control. The NCV70521 is implemented in I2T100 technology, enabling both high voltage analog circuitry and digital functionality on the same chip. The chip is fully compatible with the automotive voltage requirements. The NCV70521 is ideally suited for general purpose stepper motor applications in the automotive environment.
