The A4988 driver 3D Printer Module Stepper Motor Driver is a complete micro stepping motor driver with built-in converter, easy to operate. The products can be in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step mode of operation bipolar stepper motor, output drive performance up to 35 V and 2 A. A4988 includes a fixed off-time current regulator, the regulator can be in slow or mixed decay mode
The converter is the key to the easy implementation of the A4988. As long as the input of a pulse in the “step” in the input can be driven motor, micro-step.
There are no phase sequence tables, high-frequency control interface programming or complex.
The application of A4988 interface is very suitable for a complex microprocessor is not available or overload.
In the stepping operation, the chopping control in the A4988 automatically selects the current decay mode (slow or mixed).
In mixed decay mode, the device is initially set to rapid degradation in the portion of the fixed off-time, then the attenuation in the stop time slow the rest. The mixed decay current control scheme can reduce the audible motor noise, increased step accuracy, and reduced power consumption.
Provide internal synchronous rectification control circuitry, in order to improve the pulse width modulation (PWM) power consumption during operation.
Internal circuit protection includes thermal shutdown with hysteresis, under-voltage lockout (UVLO) and crossover current protection. Don’t need special power-up sequencing.
A4988 uses surface mount QFN package (ES), the size is 5 mm X 5 mm, nominal overall package height is 0.90 mm, with an exposed thermal pad to enhance heat dissipation function.
The package is a lead-free package (suffix – T), with 100% matte tin lead frame plating.
