The current range given above represents conditions when output voltage is not in the avalanche state.
If the output voltage is in the avalanche state, see the allowable avalanche energy for STK672-6** series hybrid ICs
given in a separate document.
The operating substrate temperature, Tc, given above is measured while the motor is operating.
Because Tc varies depending on the ambient temperature, Ta, the value of IOH, and the continuous or intermittent
operation of IOH, always verify this value using an actual set.
The Tc temperature should be checked in the center of the metal surface of the product package.

Precautions
[GND wiring]
To reduce noise on the 5V/24V system, be sure to place the GND of C01 in the circuit given above as close as possible
to Pin 2 and Pin 6 of the hybrid IC.
In addition, in order to set the current accurately, the GND side of RO2 of Vref must be connected to the shared ground
terminal used by the Pin P.G1 and P.G2.
[Input pins]
If VDD is being applied, use care that each input pin does not apply a negative voltage less than -0.3V to P. GND,
Pin 2,6. Measures must also be taken so that a voltage equal to or greater than VDD is not input.
Do not wire by connecting the circuit pattern on the P.C.B side to N.C Pins. shown in the internal block diagram.
 Apply 2.5V high level input to pins 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 17.
 Since the input pins do not have built-in pull-up resistors, when the open-collector type pins 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 17
are used as inputs, a 1 to 20k pull-up resistor (to VDD) must be used.
At this time, use a device for the open collector driver that has output current specifications that pull the voltage down to
less than 0.8V at Low level (less than 0.8V at Low level when IOL=5mA).
[Current setting Vref]
Considering the specifications for the Vref input bias current IIB, we recommend a value 1k or less for R02.
If the motor current is temporarily reduced, the circuit given below(STK672-630CN-E: IOH>0.2A)
is recommended.

MODE1=0: 2-phase excitation
MODE2=1: Rising edge of CLOCK
MODE1=1: 1-2 phase excitation
MODE2=0: Rising and falling edges of CLOCK
See the timing charts for details on output operation in these modes.
Note: Do not change the mode within 5s of the input rising or falling edge of the CLOCK signal.

Input frequency: DC-20kHz (when using both edges) or DC-50kHz (when using one edge)
Minimum pulse width: 20s (when using both edges) or 10s (when using one edge)
Pulse width duty: 40% to 50% (when using both edges)
Both edge, single edge operation
MODE2:1 The excitation phase moves one step at a time at the rising edge of the CLOCK pulse.
MODE2:0 The excitation phase moves alternately one step at a time at the rising and falling edges of the CLOCK pulse.
1-3.[CWB (Motor direction setting)]
When CWB=0: The motor rotates in the clockwise direction.
When CWB=1: The motor rotates in the counterclockwise direction.
See the timing charts for details on the operation of the outputs.
Note: Do not allow CWB input to vary during the 6.25s interval before and after the rising and falling edges of
CLOCK input.
1-4.[RESETB (System-wide reset)]
The reset signal is formed by the power-on reset function built into the HIC and the RESETB terminal.
When activating the internal circuits of the HIC using the power-on reset signal within the HIC, be sure to connect Pin
14 of the HIC to VDD.
1-5. [ENABLE (Forcible OFF control of excitation drive output A, AB, B, and BB, and selecting operation/hold status
inside the HIC)]
ENABLE=1: Normal operation
When ENABLE=0: Motor current goes OFF, and excitation drive output is forcibly turned OFF.
The system clock inside the HIC stops at this time, with no effect on the HIC even if input pins other than RESET input
vary. In addition, since current does not flow to the motor, the motor shaft becomes free.
If the CLOCK signal used for motor rotation suddenly stops, the motor shaft may advance beyond the control position
due to inertia. A SLOW DOWN setting where the CLOCK cycle gradually decreases is required in order to stop at the
control position.

1-6. [FAULT1]
FAULT1 is an open drain output. It outputs low level when any of motor terminal open, overcurrent, or overheat is
detected.
1-7. [FAULT2]
Output is resistance divided (3 levels) and the type of abnormality detected is converted to the corresponding output
voltage.
Motor terminal open: 10mV (typ)
Overcurrent: 2.5V (typ)
Overheat: 3.3V (typ)
Abnormality detection can be released by a RESETB operation or turning VDD voltage on/off.
1-8. [VrefOP]
To set the motor current detection circuit operates when pin is open, to monitor the reference voltage VrefOP terminal.
It is also possible to set any detectable current by connecting an external pull-up resistor to 5V supply.
<IOHd by setting pull-up resistor current sensing pin 7 open>
When 7 pins open, VrefOP (typ) is 98mV. In this case, detection current IOHd is expressed as follows.
VefOP = IOHd × Rs (Rs: Current detection resistor)
Detection current is 0.7A for the STK672-630CN-E, 1.1A for the STK672-640CN-E motor drivers.
Note: Detective current IOHdX is greatly set when used 5V pulling up resistance.
Reference voltage VrefOPX is calculated as above.Pull-up resistor Rdx by pin 7 is calculated as follows.
RdX = (180 × RTX) ÷ (180 - RTX)
RTX = (5.0V - VrefOPX) ÷ ((1.0588 × VrefOPX) - 0.0765) (RdX and RTX unit is kΩ)
*To disable pin open detection, please connect a 5V pull-up resistor of 10k to 15kΩ.
1-9.[Vref (Voltage setting to be used for the current setting reference)]
Input voltage is in the voltage range of 0.14V to 1.38V.
The recommended Vref voltage is 0.14V or higher because the output offset voltage of Vref/4.9 amplifier cannot be
controlled down to 0V.
Note:Pin type is analog input configuration.
1-10. [Input timing]
The control IC of the driver is equipped with a power on reset function capable of initializing internal IC operations
when power is supplied. A 4V typ setting is used for power on reset. Because the specification for the MOSFET gate
voltage is 5V5%, conduction of current to output at the time of power on reset adds electromotive stress to the
MOSFET due to lack of gate voltage. To prevent electromotive stress, be sure to set ENABLE=Low while VDD,
which is outside the operating supply voltage, is less than 4.75V.
In addition, if the RESETB terminal is used to initialize output timing, be sure to allow at least 10s until CLOCK
input.

2. Overcurrent detection, overheat detection, and motor terminal open functions
Each detection function operates using a latch system and turns output off. Because a RESET signal is required to
restore output operations, once the power supply, VDD, is turned off, you must either again apply power on reset with
VDDON or apply a RESETB=HighLowHigh signal.
2-1.[Motor terminal open detection]
This hybrid IC is equipped with a function for detecting open output terminals to prevent thermal destruction of the
MOSFET due to repeated avalanche operation that occurs when an output terminal connected to the motor is open.
The open condition is determined by checking the presence or absence of the flyback current that flows in the motor
inductance during the off period of the PWM cycle.
Detection is performed by using the fact that the flyback current does not flow when a motor terminal is open.

PWM period
When the current level drops, the difference with the GND potential decreases, making detection difficult.
The motor current that can be detected by motor terminal open detection is 0.7A for the STK672-630CN-E, 1.1A for
the STK672-640CN-E motor drivers
<Notes on the ENABLE high edge>
When ENABLE changes from low to high and the STK672-6xxCN-E performs constant-current PWM operation that
flows a negative current during the 30s period after the high edge, open detection may activate and stop the driver.
The motor current setting voltage Vref must be set so that PWM operation is not performed within a period of 30s
after the high edge.
If the motor current setup voltage is set for the rated motor current, PWM operation is not performed during this 30s
period after the high edge, so this is not a problem.
In addition, there is no problem with operation that lowers the current setting Vref after the motor rated current is
reached as shown in the diagram on the following page.
Whether constant-current PWM operation is performed during the 30s period after the high edge can be judged by
substituting the motor L and R values into the formula on the following page.
Vref= (R02 ÷ (R01+R02)) × 5V (or 3.3V)
IOH1= (Vref ÷ 4.9) ÷ Rs
IOH1: Motor current value to be set
IOH2= (VCC ÷ R) × (1-e-tR/L)
IOH2: Current value 30s after the ENABLE high edge
 Judgment standard: IOH1IOH2
R01, R02, 5V (or 3.3V): See the Sample Application Circuit documents.
Rs: Current detection resistance value ()
VCC: Motor supply voltage (V)
R: Motor winding resistance ()
L: Motor winding inductance (H)
 There is no problem if the IOH2 obtained by substituting t = 30s and the motor L and R values is smaller than
the current setting value IOH1.

Constant-current PWM operation must not be performed for 30 µs or less.
<Connection of capacitors between output pins and GND prohibited>
Capacitors must not be connected between the phase A (pin 4), phase AB (pin 5), phase B (pin 3) and phase BB (pin
1) outputs and GND. What happens if capacitors are connected is that open-circuit detection may be triggered by the
discharge current of the capacitors when the internal MOSFET is set ON. This current is not an inductance current
generated by the motor winding but a capacitor current so a negative current will not flow to the other phase in each
pair of phases, possibly causing the driver to shut down.
<Excessive external noise>
If, when the motor current rises prior to the PWM operation, a spike-shaped current exceeding the Vref-setting
current is generated by excessive external noise, for instance, before the current level (0.7A for the STK672-630CN-E,
1.1A for the STK672-640CN-E motor drivers) at which motor pin open-circuiting can be detected is reached, the
internal MOSFET is set OFF.
Since the MOSFET has been set OFF before the actual motor current reaches 0.7A (or 1.1A), the level of the negative
current subsequently flowing to the other phase in each pair of phases is low, and it may be judged that no negative
current is flowing, possibly causing open-circuit detection to be triggered.
During normal constant-current PWM operation, the duration of 5.5s, which is equivalent to 25% of the initial
operation in the PWM period, corresponds to the section where the current is not detected, and this ensures that no
current is detected for the linking part of the current that is generated in this section. The no-current detection section
is not synchronized at the current rise prior to the PWM operation so when a spike-shaped current exceeding the
Vref-setting current is generated, the MOSFET is set OFF at the stage where the level of the actual motor current is
low. As a result, the level of the negative current subsequently flowing to the other phase in each pair of phases is low,
and it may be judged that no negative current is flowing, possibly causing open-circuit detection to be triggered.

This hybrid IC is equipped with a function for detecting overcurrent that arises when the motor burns out or when there
is a short between the motor terminals.
Overcurrent detection occurs at 3.5A typ with the STK672-630CN-E, and 5.5A typ with the STK672-640CN-E.

Overcurrent detection begins after an interval of no detection (a dead time of 5.5s typ) during the initial ringing part
during PWM operations. The no detection interval is a period of time where overcurrent is not detected even if the
current exceeds IOH.
2-3. [Overheat detection]
Rather than directly detecting the temperature of the semiconductor device, overheat detection detects the temperature
of the aluminum substrate (144C typ).
Within the allowed operating range recommended in the specification manual, if a heat sink attached for the purpose of
reducing the operating substrate temperature, Tc, comes loose, the semiconductor can operate without breaking.
However, we cannot guarantee operations without breaking in the case of operations other than those recommended,
such as operations at a current exceeding IOH max that occurs before overcurrent detection is activated.

3. Allowable Avalanche Energy Value
(1) Allowable Range in Avalanche Mode
When driving a 2-phase Stepper motor with constant current chopping using an STK672-6** Series hybrid IC, the
waveforms shown in Figure 1 below result for the output current, ID, and voltage, VDS.
VDSS: Voltage during avalanche operations
IOH: Motor current peak value
IAVL: Current during avalanche operations
tAVL: Time of avalanche operations
Figure 1 Output Current, ID, and Voltage, VDS, Waveforms 1 of the STK672-6** Series when Driving a
2-Phase Motor with Constant Current Chopping
When operations of the MOSFET built into STK672-6** Series ICs is turned off for constant current chopping, the ID
signal falls like the waveform shown in the figure above. At this time, the output voltage, VDS, suddenly rises due to
electromagnetic induction generated by the motor coil.
In the case of voltage that rises suddenly, voltage is restricted by the MOSFET VDSS. Voltage restriction by VDSS
results in a MOSFET avalanche. During avalanche operations, ID flows and the instantaneous energy at this time, EAVL1,
is represented by Equation (3-1).
EAVL1=VDSSIAVL0.5tAVL ------------------------------------------- (3-1)
VDSS: V units, IAVL: A units, tAVL: sec units
The coefficient 0.5 in Equation (3-1) is a constant required to convert the IAVL triangle wave to a square wave.
During STK672-6** Series operations, the waveforms in the figure above repeat due to the constant current chopping
operation. The allowable avalanche energy, EAVL, is therefore represented by Equation (3-2) used to find the average
power loss, PAVL, during avalanche mode multiplied by the chopping frequency in Equation (3-1).
PAVL=VDSSIAVL0.5tAVLfc ------------------------------------------- (3-2)
fc: Hz units (fc is set to the PWM frequency of 50kHz.)
For VDSS, IAVL, and tAVL, be sure to actually operate the STK672-6** Series and substitute values when operations
are observed using an oscilloscope.
Ex. If VDSS=110V, IAVL=1A, tAVL=0.2s, the result is:
PAVL=11010.50.210-650103=0.55W
VDSS=110V is a value actually measured using an oscilloscope.
The allowable loss range for the allowable avalanche energy value, PAVL, is shown in the graph in Figure 3.
When examining the avalanche energy, be sure to actually drive a motor and observe the ID, VDSS, and tAVL waveforms
during operation, and then check that the result of calculating Equation (3-2) falls within the allowable range for
avalanche operations.

(2) ID and VDSS Operating Waveforms in Non-avalanche Mode
Although the waveforms during avalanche mode are given in Figure 1, sometimes an avalanche does not result during
actual operations.
Factors causing avalanche are listed below.
 Poor coupling of the motor’s phase coils (electromagnetic coupling of A phase and AB phase, B phase and BB phase).
 Increase in the lead inductance of the harness caused by the circuit pattern of the board and motor.
 Increases in VDSS, tAVL, and IAVL in Figure 1 due to an increase in the supply voltage from 24V to 36V.
If the factors above are negligible, the waveforms shown in Figure 1 become waveforms without avalanche as shown
in Figure 2.
Under operations shown in Figure 2, avalanche does not occur and there is no need to consider the allowable loss
range of PAVL shown in Figure 3.

For the values of Vsat and Vdf, be sure to substitute from Vsat vs IOH and Vdf vs IOH at the setting current value IOH.
(See pages to follow)
Then, determine if a heat sink is necessary by comparing with the Tc vs Pd graph (see next page) based on the
calculated average output loss, HIC.
For heat sink design, be sure to see ‘5. Thermal Design’.
The HIC average power, PdAVex described above, represents loss when not in avalanche mode.
To add the loss in avalanche mode, be sure to add PAVL using the formula (for average power loss , PAVL, for
STK672-6** during avalanche mode, described below to PdAVex described above.)
When using this IC without a fin, always check for temperature increases in the set, because the HIC substrate
temperature, Tc, varies due to effects of convection around the HIC.

5. Thermal design
[Operating range in which a heat sink is not used]
Use of a heat sink to lower the operating substrate temperature of the HIC (Hybrid IC) is effective in increasing the
quality of the HIC.
The size of heat sink for the HIC varies depending on the magnitude of the average power loss, PdAV, within the HIC.
The value of PdAV increases as the output current increases. To calculate PdAV, refer to “Calculating Internal HIC
Loss” in the specification document.
Calculate the internal HIC loss, PdAV, assuming repeat operation such as shown in Figure 1 below, since
conduction during motor rotation and off time both exist during actual motor operations,

Due to the structure of motor windings, the phase current is a positive and negative current with a pulse form.
Note that figure 1 presents the concepts here, and that the on/off duty of the actual signals will differ.
The hybrid IC internal average power dissipation PdAV can be calculated from the following formula.
PdAV= (T1P1+T2P2+T30) TO ---------------------------- (I)
(Here, P1 is the PdAV for IO1 and P2 is the PdAV for IO2)
If the value calculated using Equation (I) is 1.5W or less, and the ambient temperature, Ta, is 60C or less, there is no
need to attach a heat sink. Refer to Figure 2 for operating substrate temperature data when no heat sink is used.
[Operating range in which a heat sink is used]
Although a heat sink is attached to lower Tc if PdAV increases, the resulting size can be found using the value of
c-a in Equation (II) below and the graph depicted in Figure 3.
c-a= (Tc max-Ta) PdAV ---------------------------- (II)
Tc max : Maximum operating substrate temperature =105C
Ta: HIC ambient temperature
Although a heat sink can be designed based on equations (I) and (II) above, be sure to mount the HIC in a set and
confirm that the substrate temperature, Tc, is 105C or less.
The average HIC power loss, PdAV, described above represents the power loss when there is no avalanche operation.
To add the loss during avalanche operations, be sure to add Equation (3-2), “Allowable STK672-6** Avalanche
Energy Value”, to PdAV.

8. Other usage notes
In addition to the “Notes” indicated in the Sample Application Circuit, care should also be given to the following
contents during use.
(1) Allowable operating range
Operation of this product assumes use within the allowable operating range. If a supply voltage or an input voltage
outside the allowable operating range is applied, an overvoltage may damage the internal control IC or the
MOSFET.
If a voltage application mode that exceeds the allowable operating range is anticipated, connect a fuse or take other
measures to cut off power supply to the product.
(2) Input pins
If the input pins are connected directly to the board connectors, electrostatic discharge or other overvoltage outside
the specified range may be applied from the connectors and may damage the product. Current generated by this
overvoltage can be suppressed to effectively prevent damage by inserting 100 to 1k resistors in lines connected
to the input pins.
Take measures such as inserting resistors in lines connected to the input pins.
(3) Power connectors
If the motor power supply VCC is applied by mistake without connecting the GND part of the power connector
when the product is operated, such as for test purposes, an overcurrent flows through the VCC decoupling capacitor,
C1, to the parasitic diode between the VDD of the internal control IC and GND, and may damage the power supply
pin block of the internal control IC.
To prevent damage in this case, connect a 10 resistor to the VDD pin, or insert a diode between the VCC
decoupling capacitor C1 GND and the VDD pin.

(4) Input Signal Lines
1) Do not use an IC socket to mount the driver, and instead solder the driver directly to the board to minimize
fluctuations in the GND potential due to the influence of the resistance component and inductance component of
the GND pattern wiring.
2) To reduce noise caused by electromagnetic induction to small signal lines, do not design small signal lines (sensor
signal lines, and 5V or 3.3V power supply signal lines) that run parallel in close proximity to the motor output line
A (Pin 4), AB (Pin 5), B (Pin 3), or BB (Pin 1) phases.

(6) VCC operating limit
When the output (for example F1) of a 2-phase stepper motor driver is turned OFF, the AB phase back electromotive
force eab produced by current flowing to the paired F2 parasitic diode is induced in the F1 side, causing the output
voltage VFB to become twice or more the VCC voltage. This is expressed by the following formula.
VFB = VCC + eab
= VCC + VCC + IOH x RM + Vdf (1.6V)
VCC: Motor supply voltage, IOH: Motor current set by Vref
Vdf: Voltage drop due to F2 parasitic diode and current detection resistor R1, RM: Motor winding resistance value
Using the above formula, make sure that VFB is always less than the MOSFET withstand voltage of 100V. This is
because there is a possibility that operating limit of VCC falls below the allowable operating range of 46V, due to the
RM and IOH specifications.

The oscillating voltage in excess of VFB is caused by LCRM (inductance, capacitor, resistor, mutual inductance)

there is some difference in oscillating voltage according to the motor specifications. In addition, constant voltage drive
without constant current drive enables motor rotation at VCC  0V.
