Motor Current Set Range is determined by the built-in resistor value, RSInt. For PR products, pay extra
attention to the change-over between the motor current specification range, IMO, and the Sleep1 Set Range.
VOCP falls on the "prohibition zone" threshold. If the change-over time is too slow, OCP operation would
start when VSInt > VOCP .

• The Reset function is asynchronous. If the input on the Reset
pin is High, the internal logic circuit is reset. At this point, if the
Ref pin stays Low, then the DMOS outputs turn on at the starting
point of excitation. Note that the Disable control is not available
with the Reset pin signal.
• The Sync function is active only at “2-phase excitation timing." If this function is used at other than 2-phase excitation
timing, an overall balance might collapse because PWM off-time
and set current are different in each phase A and phase B control
scenario. (2-phase excitation timing is a point where the step
reference current ratio of both phase A and phase B is Mode 8.)
Sleep Functions
The Hold mode stops motor rotation when applying current
into a motor, and the device remains in Active status. Sleep1 is
a sleep operation when logic circuits operate according to input
signals. Sleep2 is a sleep operation in which the status of the
logic circuits do not vary, but instead, they keep the same state as
before the sleep function is initiated.
Sleep1 Function Setting Voltage at the REF / SLEEP1 pin
controls the PWM current and the Sleep1 function. For normal
operation, VREF should be below 1.5 V (Low level). Applying a
voltage greater than 2.0 V (High level) to the REF / SLEEP1 pin
disables the outputs and puts the motor in a free state (coast).
This function is used to minimize power consumption when the
device is not in use. Although it disables much of the internal
www.allegromicro.com
circuitry, including the output MOSFETs and regulator, the
sequencer / translator circuit is active. Therefore, a microcontroller can set the step starting point for the next operation during
the Sleep1 function.

Sleep2 function
In the Sleep2 function, the outputs are disabled and the driver
supply current (IBB) is reduced. However, unlike the Sleep1
function, the logic circuitry is put into a "standby" state and
therefore the sequencer / translator is not activated, even if a step
command signal occurs on the CLOCK input pin.
Monitor Output Pin
The pin used to monitor the device output is different between
these configurations:
• Microstepping products: Mo (2-phase excitation timing)
• PR products: Flag (Protection circuit operation timing)
Note that PR products with microstepping have both of the
monitor output pins.

LOGIC INPUT PINS
The low pass filter incorporated with the logic input pins (RESET, CLOCK, F / R, M1, M2, M3, and SYNC) improves noise
rejection. The logic inputs are CMOS input compatible, and
therefore they are in high impedance state. Use the IC at a fixed
input level, either Low or High.
RESET input
Input Logic Timing
CLOCK signal. This device includes clock-in type of control that
simplifies the interface.
• Reset release and CLOCK input timing
• RESET input pulse width
The Reset pulse width is equivalent to the high pulse level hold
time. It should be greater than the 2 µs CLOCK input pulse
width.
• Pulse characteristics
A low-to-high and high-to-low transition on the CLOCK input
sequences the translator / sequencer. Clock pulse width should
be set at 2 µs in both positive and negative polarities. Therefore,
clock response frequency becomes 250 kHz.
F / R, M1, M2, and M3 logic change
Logic level inputs on F / R, M1, M2, and M3 set the translator
step direction (F / R) and step mode (M1, M2, and M3; refer to
the Commutation Truth Table). Changes to these inputs do not
take effect until the rising edge of the CLOCK input. However,
depending on the type and state of a motor, there may be errors
in motor operation. A thorough evaluation on the changes of
sequence should be carried out.
• Set-up and hold times before and after Clock pulse
With regard to the input logic of the F / R, M1, M2, and M3 pins,
a 1 µs delay should occur both before and after the pulse edges,
as set-up and hold times. The sequencer logic circuitry might
malfunction if the logic polarity is changed during these set-up
and hold times. Refer to the figure below.
Reset
The RESET input sets the translator / sequencer to a predefined
Home state and turns off all of the DMOS outputs. A low pass
filter is incorporated into the Reset circuit; therefore, a greater
than 5 µs delay is required between the falling edge of the RESET input and the rising edge of the CLOCK input.

INDIVIDUAL CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
Monolithic IC (MIC)
The descriptions of the monolithic IC (MIC) elements in this
section are applicable to both models of products: PR and R.
However, the blanking time differs among some options, and
current value in low current mode will vary according to the
minimum on-time difference.
• Sequencer Logic
The single CLOCK input is used for step timing. Direction is
controlled by the F / R input.
Commutation mode is controlled by the combination of the M1,
M2, and M3 logic levels. For details, refer to the Commutation
Truth Table on page 13.
• PWM Current Control
Each pair of outputs is controlled by a fixed off-time PWM
current-control circuit. The internal oscillator (OSC) sets the
off-time. Its operation mechanism is identical to that of the
SLA7060M family. Refer to the Functional Description section
for further details.
• Synchronous Operation Mode
This function prevents occasional motor noise during Hold
mode, which normally results from asynchronous PWM operation of both motor phases. A logic high at the SYNC input sets
synchronous operation. A logic low sets asynchronous operation.
The use of synchronous operation during normal stepping is not
recommended because it produces less motor torque and can
cause motor vibration due to staircase current.
The use of synchronous operation when the motor is not in
operation is allowed only in full/half step sequence timing, due
to the difference in the current controlled and PWM off-time at
other step sequence timings.
• DAC (D-to-A Converter)
In microstep sequencing, the current at each step is set by the
value of a sense resistor (RSInt), a reference voltage (VREF), and
the output voltage of the DACs, controlled by the output of the
sequencer (translator). Refer to the Stepping Characteristics table
on page 5.
www.allegromicro.com
• Regulator Circuit
The integrated regulator circuit is used in driving the output
MOSFET gates and powering other internal linear circuits.
• Protection Circuit
A built-in protection circuit against motor coil opens or shorts is
available in the PR products. Protection is activated by sensing
voltage on the internal RSInt resistors; therefore, an overcurrent
condition cannot be detected which results from the the OUT
pins or SENSEx pins, or both, shorting to GND.
Protection against motor coil opens is available only during
PWM operation; therefore, it does not work at constant voltage
driving, when the motor is rotating at high speed.
Operation of the protection circuit disables all of the DMOS
outputs. To come out of protection mode, cycle the logic supply,
VDD.
Output MOSFET Chip
The value of the built-in output DMOS chip varies according
to which of the four different output current ratings has been
selected.
Sense Resistor
Sense resistors are incorporated in the PR and R products to
detect motor current. The resistance varies according to which
of the four different output current ratings has been selected, as
follows:
Output Current
(A)
RSInt Resistance

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
PWM Current Control
The description in this section is applicable to the PR and R
products.
• Blanking time
The actual operating waveforms on the SENSEx pins when driving a motor are shown in figure 1. Immediately after PWM turns
OFF, ringing (or spike) noise on the SENSEx pins is observed
for a few μs. Ringing noise can be generated by various causes,
such as capacitance between motor coils and inappropriate motor
wiring.
Each pair of outputs is controlled by a fixed off-time (7 to 12 μs,
depending on stepping mode) PWM current-control circuit that
limits the load current to a desired value, ITRIP. Initially, an outt
put is enabled and current flows through the motor winding and
the current-sense resistors. When the voltage across the currentsense resistor equals the DAC output voltage, VTRIP , the currentsense comparator resets the PWM latch. This turns off the driver
for the fixed off-time, during which the load inductance causes
the current to recirculate for the off-time period. Therefore, if the
ringing noise on the sense resistor equals and surpasses VTRIP ,
PWM turns off.
To prevent this phenomenon, the blanking time is set to override
signals from the current-sense comparator for a certain period
right after PWM turns on (figure 2).

PWM Off Period
The PWM off-time for the SLA7070M series is controlled as a
fixed time by an internal oscillator. It also is switched in 3 levels
by current proportion (see the Electrical Characteristics table).
In addition, the SLA7070M series provide a function that
decreases losses occurring when the PWM turns off. This function dissolves back EMF stored in the motor coil at MOSFET
turn-on, as well as at PWM turn-on (synchronous rectification
operation).
Figure 3 shows the difference in back EMF generative system
between the SLA7060M series and SLA7070M series. The
SLA7060M series performs on–off operations using only the
MOSFET on the PWM-on side, but the SLA7070M series also
performs on–off operations using only the MOSFET on the
PWM-off side. To prevent simultaneous switching of the MOSFETs at synchronous rectification operation, the IC has a dead
time of approximately 0.5 µs. During dead time, the back EMF
flows through the body diode on the MOSFET.

Protection Functions: PR Types
The PR types of the SLA7070M series include a motor coil
short-circuit protection circuit and a motor coil open protection
circuit. They are described in this section.
• Motor Coil Short-Circuit Protection (Load Short) Circuit
This protection circuit, embedded in the SLA7070M series, begins to operate when the device detects an increase in the voltage
level on the sense resistor, VSInt .
The voltage at which motor coil short-circuit protection starts
its operation, VOCP, is set at approximately 0.7 V. The output is
disabled at the time the protection circuit starts.
In order for the motor coil short-circuit protection circuit to operate, VSInt must be greater than VOCP .
Overcurrent that flows without passing the sense resistor is undetectable. To resume the circuit after protection operates, VDD
must be cycled.
• Motor Coil Open Protection
Details of this functions is not disclosed yet due to our patent

APPLICATION INFORMATION
Motor Current Ratio Setting (R1, R2, RSInt)
The setting calculation of motor current IOUT on SLA7070M
series is determined by the ratios of external components R1, R2,
and RSInt (refer to the application example circuit on page 12).
The following is a formula for calculating IOUT:
R2
(1)
IOUT =
VDD RSInt
R1 + R2
when VREF is within specification. If VREF is set less than 0.1 V,
variation or impedance of the wiring pattern may influence the
IC and the possibility of less accurate current sensing becomes
high.
The standard voltage of current ITRIP that SLA7070M series
controls is partially divided by the internal DAC:
VREF
(2)
ITRIP =
Mode Proportion
RSInt
For RSInt value, see Sense Resistor section, page 21.
Lower Limit of Control Current
The SLA7070M series uses a self-oscillating PWM current
control topology in which the off- time is fixed. As energy stored
in motor coil is eliminated within fixed the PWM off-time, coil
current flows intermittently, as shown in figure 5.
Thus, average current decrease and motor torque also decrease.
The point intermissive current starts flowing to the coil is considered as the lower limit of the control current. The lower limit
of control current differs by conditions of motor or other factors,
but it is calculated from the following formula.

VM is the motor supply voltage,
RDS(on) is the MOSFET on resistance,
IOUT is the target current level,
RM is the motor winding resistance,
LM is the motor winding reactance, and
tOFF is the PWM off-time.
Even if the control current value is set at less than the lower limit
of the control current, there is no setting at which the IC fails to
operate. However, control current will worsen against setting
current.
Avalanche Energy
In the unipolar topology of the SLA7070M series, a surge
voltage (ringing noise) that exceeds the MOSFET capacity to
withstand might be applied to the IC. To prevent damage, the
SLA7070M series is designed a MOSFET having sufficient avalanche resistance to withstand this surge voltage. Therefore, even
if surge voltages occur, users will be able to use the IC without
any problems. However, in cases in which the motor harness is
long or the IC is used above its rated current or voltage, there
is a possibility that an avalanche energy could be applied that
exceeds Sanken design expectations. Thus, users must test the
avalanche energy applied to the IC under actual application
conditions.

By comparing the EAV calculated with the graph shown in

There is no restriction of the on-off sequence of the main power
supply, VBB, and the logic supply, VDD.
Motor Supply Voltage (VM) and Main Power Supply
Voltage (VBB)
Because the SLA7070M series has a structure that separates the
control IC (MIC) and the power MOSFETs as shown in the schematics on pages 10 and 11, motor supply and main power supply
are separated. Therefore, it is possible to drive the IC with using
different power supplies and different voltages for motor supply
and main power supply. However, extra caution is needed because the supply voltage ranges differ among power supplies.

• Reset
The sequencer circuit of this product is initialized after logic
supply (VDD) is applied, and the power on reset function operates. To initialize the sequencer, the output immediately after
power-on indicates that the status that the power circuits are in
the home state. In a case where the sequencer must be reset after
motor has been operating, a reset signal must be inputted on the
RESET pin. In a case in which external reset control is not necessary, the RESET pin is not used, and must be fixed at a logic
low level on the application circuit board.
• CLOCK Input
When the CLOCK input signal stops, excitation changes to
the motor Hold state. At this time, there is no difference if the
CLOCK input signal is at the low level or the high level. The
SLA7070M series is designed to move 1 step at a time, when a
Clock pulse edge is detected.
• Chopping Synchronous Circuit
The SLA7070M series has a chopping synchronous function to
protect from abnormal noises that may occasionally occur during
the motor-Hold state. This function can be operated by setting
the SYNC terminal at high level. However, if this function is
used during motor rotation, control current does not stabilize,
and therefore this may cause reduction of motor torque or
increased vibration. So, Sanken does not recommend using this
function while the motor is rotating. In addition, the synchronous
circuit should be disabled in order to control motor current properly in case it is used other than in dual excitation state (Modes 8
and F) or single excitation Hold state.
In normal operation, generally the input signal for switching can
be sent from an external microcomputer. However, in applications where the input signal cannot be transmitted adequately
due to limitations of the port, the following method can be taken
to use the functions.
The schematic diagram in figure 8 shows how the IC is designed
so that the Sync signal can be determined by the CLOCK input
signal. When a logic high signal is received on the CLOCK pin,
the internal capacitor, C, is charged, and the Sync signal is set to
logic low level. However, if the Clock signal cannot rise above
logic low level (such as when the circuit between the microcomputer and the IC is not adequate), the capacitor is discharged by
the internal resistor, R, and the Sync signal is set to logic high,
causing the IC to shift to synchronous mode.
The RC time constant in the circuit should be determined by the
minimum clock frequency used. In the case of a sequence that
keeps the CLOCK input signal at logic high, an inverter circuit
must be added. In a case where the Clock signal is set at an
undetermined level, an edge detection circuit (figure 9) can be
used to prepare the signal for the CLOCK input, allowing correct
processing by the circuit shown in figure 8.
• Output Disable (Sleep1 and Sleep2) Circuits
There are two methods to set this IC at motor free-state (coast,
with outputs disabled). One is to set the REF/SLEEP1 pin to
more than 2 V (Sleep1), and the other (Sleep2) is to set the
excitation signals (pins M1, M2, and M3). In either way, the IC
will change to Sleep mode, stopping the main power supply at
the same time, and decreasing circuit current. The difference
between the two methods is that, in the first way, the internal
sequencer remains in an enabled state, and in the latter method,
the IC enters the Hold state. Moreover, in the method using

the excitation signals (Sleep2), excitation timing remains in a
"standby" state, even if a signal is inputted on the CLOCK pin
during Sleep mode.
• REF/SLEEP1 Pin
When awaking to normal operating mode (motor rotation) from
disabled (Sleep1 or Sleep2) mode, set an appropriate delay time
from cancellation of the disable mode to the initial CLOCK
input edge. In doing so, consider not only of rise time for the
IC, but also of the rise time for the motor excitation current, is
important (see figure 10).
• Standard voltage setting for output current level setting
• Output enable-disable control input
These functions are further described in the Truth Tables section
(page 13), and in the discussion of output disabling, above.
The REF/SLEEP1 pin provides access to the following functions:
The figure in the Reference Voltage Setting section (page 7),
shows the general relationship between the reference voltage,
VREF , (REF/SLEEP1 pin) setting voltage and performance.
There are, however, situations in which extra caution should be
exercised. These are shown in figure 11:

Range A. In this range, control current value also varies in accordance with VREF. Therefore, losses in the IC and the sense
resistors must be given extra consideration.

Range B. In this range, the voltage that switches output enable
and disable (Sleep mode) exists. At enable, the same cautions
apply as in range A. In addition, for some cases, there are possibilities that the output status will become unstable as a result of
iteration between enable and disable.

If a logic input pin (CLOCK, RESET, F/R, M1, M2, M3, or
SYNC) is not used (fixed logic level), the pin must be tied to
VDD or GND. Please do not leave them floating, because there
is possibility of undefined effects on IC performance

THERMAL DESIGN INFORMATION
It is not practical to calculate the power dissipation of SLA7070M
series accurately, because that would require factors that are variable during operation, such as time periods and excitation modes
during motor rotation, input frequencies and sequences, and so
forth. Given this situation, it is preferable to perform an approximate calculation at worst conditions. The following is a simplified formula for calculation of power dissipation:
where:
�� � � ����
����������������
Based on the PD calculated using the above formulas, the expected increase in operating junction temperature, ∆TJ , of the
IC can be estimated using figure 13. This result must be added
to the worst case ambient temperature when operating, TA(max).
Based on the calculation, there is no problem unless TA(max) +
∆TJ > 150°C.

However, final confirmation must be made by measuring the IC
temperature during operation and then verifying power dissipa-

The value of RθJA is calculated from the following formula:

where RθFin is the thermal resistance of the heat sink.
∆TJA can be calculated with using the value of RθJA:

(8)
The following procedure should be used to measure product
temperature in actual operation and then estimate junction temperature:
1. Measure the ambient temperature, TA.
2. With the device mounted but not operating, measure the temperature of the device case at the center (pin 12).
3. Power-on the device, and after it reaches operating temperature, take the measurement again.
4. Subtract the value found in step 2 from the value found in
step 3. This will provide a value for ∆TCA.
CAUTION
The SLA7070M series is designed as a multichip, with separate power elements (MOSFET), control IC (MIC), and sense
resistance. Consequently, because the control IC cannot accurately detect the temperature of the power elements (which are
the primary sources of heat), the ICs do not provide a protection
function against overheating. For thermal protection, users must
conduct sufficient thermal evaluations to be able to ensure that
the junction temperature does not exceed the warranty level
(150°C).
This thermal design information is provided for preliminary
design estimations only. The thermal performance of the IC will
be significantly determined by the conditions of the application,
in particular the state of the mounting PCB, heat sink, and the
ambient air. Before operating the IC in an application, the user
must experimentally determine the actual thermal performance.
5. Refer to figure 13 and locate the value found in step 4 on the
∆TCA trace.
The maximum recommended case temperatures (at the center,
pin 12) for the IC are:
6. Determine the corresponding power dissipation, PD.
• With no external heat sink connection: 90°C
7. Substitute the values into equation 8.
• With external heat sink connection: 80°C
