L298 Jenuary 2000 DUAL FULL-BRIDGE DRIVER Multiwatt15 ORDERING NUMBERS : L298N (Multiwatt Vert.) L298HN (Multiwatt Horiz.) L298P (PowerSO20) BLOCK DIAGRAM .OPERATING SUPPLY VOLTAGE UP TO 46 V.TOTAL DC CURRENT UP TO 4 A . LOW SATURATION VOLTAGE.OVERTEMPERATURE PROTECTION.LOGICAL "0" INPUT VOLTAGE UP TO 1.5 V (HIGH NOISE IMMUNITY) DESCRIPTION The L298 is an integrated monolithic circuit in a 15- lead Multiwatt and PowerSO20 packages. It is a high voltage, high current dual full-bridge driver de- signed to accept standard TTL logic levels and drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, DC and stepping motors. Two enable inputs are provided to enable or disable the device independently of the in- put signals. The emitters of the lower transistors of each bridge are connected together and the corre- sponding external terminal can be used for the con- nection of an external sensing resistor. An additional supply input is provided so that the logic works at a lower voltage. PowerSO20 ® 1/13

POWER OUTPUT STAGE The L298 integrates two power output stages (A ; B). The power output stage is a bridge configuration and its outputs can drive an inductive load in com- mon or differenzial mode, depending on the state of the inputs. The current that flows through the load comes out from the bridge at the sense output : an external resistor (RSA ; RSB.) allows to detect the in- tensity of this current. 1.2. INPUT STAGE Each bridge is driven by means of four gates the in- put of which are In1 ; In2 ; EnA and In3 ; In4 ; EnB. The In inputs set the bridge state when The En input is high ; a low state of the En input inhibits the bridge. All the inputs are TTL compatible. 2. SUGGESTIONS A non inductive capacitor, usually of 100 nF, must be foreseen between both Vs and Vss, to ground, as near as possible to GND pin. When the large ca- pacitor of the power supply is too far from the IC, a second smaller one must be foreseen near the L298. The sense resistor, not of a wire wound type, must be grounded near the negative pole of Vs that must be near the GND pin of the I.C. Each input must be connected to the source of the driving signals by means of a very short path. Turn-On and Turn-Off : Before to Turn-ON the Sup- ply Voltage and before to Turn it OFF, the Enable in- put must be driven to the Low state. 3. APPLICATIONS Fig 6 shows a bidirectional DC motor control Sche- matic Diagram for which only one bridge is needed. The external bridge of diodes D1 to D4 is made by four fast recovery elements (trr ≤ 200 nsec) that must be chosen of a VF as low as possible at the worst case of the load current. The sense output voltage can be used to control the current amplitude by chopping the inputs, or to pro- vide overcurrent protection by switching low the en- able input. The brake function (Fast motor stop) requires that the Absolute Maximum Rating of 2 Amps must never be overcome. When the repetitive peak current needed from the load is higher than 2 Amps, a paralleled configura- tion can be chosen (See Fig.7). An external bridge of diodes are required when in- ductive loads are driven and when the inputs of the IC are chopped ; Shottky diodes would be preferred. L298 7/13

This solution can drive until 3 Amps In DC operation and until 3.5 Amps of a repetitive peak current. On Fig 8 it is shown the driving of a two phase bipolar stepper motor ; the needed signals to drive the in- puts of the L298 are generated, in this example, from the IC L297. Fig 9 shows an example of P.C.B. designed for the application of Fig 8. Fig 10 shows a second two phase bipolar stepper motor control circuit where the current is controlled by the I.C. L6506. Figure 8 : Two Phase Bipolar Stepper Motor Circuit. This circuit drives bipolar stepper motors with winding currents up to 2 A. The diodes are fast 2 A types.
