EVAL6470H-DISC: fully integrated stepper motor driver based on
the L6470 and STM32™
Introduction
The EVAL6470H-DISC can be used together with the STM32™ firmware library V1.0 and
constitutes a complete motor control evaluation and a development platform.
It is a demonstration board for motor control applications in the range of 8 V to 45 V of DC
bus voltage using the STM32F105RB microcontroller with an internal 128 kB Flash size and
a 64 kB internal RAM and the L6470 fully integrated solution suitable for driving two-phase
bipolar stepper motors up to 1/128 microstepping.
The L6470 integrates a dual DMOS full bridge with all of the power switches equipped with
an accurate on-chip current sensing circuitry suitable for non dissipative current control and
overcurrent protection.
With dedicated hardware evaluation features, the EVAL6470H-DISC board is designed to
help developers evaluate the device and develop their own applications.

Power supply
The EVAL6470H-DISC board is designed to be powered via:

Connector J1: power of the motor and also motor control driver.

USB connector J5: power of the microcontroller and logic control.
The USB cable supplies the digital part through a dedicated LDO (U1) providing 3.3 V.
The motor power must be set according to the voltage required by the user motor.
Note:
Both the supply sources (USB connector and J1 connector) must be present to make
the board operative.

UM1691
Voltage mode driving
The configuration parameters of the voltage mode driving can be obtained through the
BEMF compensation tool embedded into the SPINFamily software.
A wrong setup of these parameters could cause several issues, in particular:

The phase current decreases with the speed and the motor will stall.

The wrong voltage is applied to the motor and the system is very noisy.

The phase current reaches the overcurrent limit.
The BEMF compensation form uses the application parameters as inputs in order to
evaluate the proper device setup.
The required inputs are:

Supply voltage.

Target phase current (r.m.s. value) at different motion conditions (acceleration,
deceleration, constant speed and holding).

Target operating speed (maximum speed).

Motor characteristics.
The motor characteristics are: electrical constant (Ke), phase inductance and resistance.
The inductance and the resistance of the phase are given in the motor datasheet. The Ke is
rarely given in the specification and must be measured.
In the help section of the SPINFamily software a step by step procedure is explained. The
same procedure can also be found in the application note “AN4144: Voltage mode control
operation and parameter optimization” on www.st.com.
Click on the “evaluate” button to get the suggested setup for the voltage mode driving. Then
click on “write” button to copy the data in the registers of the device.
4.2.3
Overcurrent and stall detection thresholds
The overcurrent protection and the stall detection are implemented measuring the current
flowing into each integrated MOSFET.
The overcurrent protection threshold should be set just above the current rating of the
motor:
IOCDth > Imax,r.m.s. × √2
For example: if the maximum phase current of the motor is 2 Ar.m.s., the overcurrent
protection should be set to about 3 A.
Warning:
Important - it is strongly discouraged to disable the
overcurrent shutdown. It may result in critical failures.
The stall detection threshold should be just above the operating peak current of the
application. During the preliminary stages of evaluation, it can be set to the maximum value.

DocID025486 Rev 2

4.2.4
General description
Speed profile
The max. speed parameter is the maximum speed the motor will run. By default, it is about
1000 step/s. That means, if you send a command to run at 2000 step/s, the motor speed is
limited at 1000 step/s.
This is an important safety feature in the final application, but not necessarily useful to
evaluate the device performances. Setting the parameter to high values (e.g. 6000 step/s)
allows evaluating the maximum speed which can be achieved by the application under test
through the speed tracking command (Run), but it probably limits the possibility to use
positioning commands (Move, GoTo, etc.).
The Full-step speed parameter indicates the speed at which the system switches from
microstepping to full step operation.
In voltage mode driving devices it is always recommended to operate in microstepping and
not to switch to full step. Hence, this parameter should be greater than the maximum speed.

If a problem is detected, the “ready” LED (green) and the “error” LED (red) will
switch on without blinking. This means that:
–
either the board ID is not recognized by the FW (bad FW versions used)
–
or there is a problem with the SPI (no connection between the MCU and the L6470
via the SPI)
–
or there is no 5 V - 45 V DC power supply.

DocID025486 Rev 2
UM1691
General description
The FW L6470 library has been tested on the L6470H DISCOVERY board R1. The main
program contains a commented demonstration sequence which uses all the FW L6470
library supported features. This sequence is interactive and to proceed to the end some
user action is necessary.
For the “GoUntil” feature demonstration, when the LED SPARE is blinking for the first time,
the user shall close the SW MOTOR jumper J8. This triggers a switch turn on event at the
L6470 SW pin.
For the “ReleaseSW” feature demonstration, when the LED SPARE is blinking again, the
user shall open the SW MOTOR jumper J8. This triggers a L6470 SW pin release.
At the end of the demonstration sequence, the GPIO connected to LEFT and RIGHT
buttons are configured to trigger interrupts on the microcontroller:
On a LEFT button press, the microcontroller starts the motor at quarter of max. speed if it is
stopped or doubles the motor speed if it is already running.
On a LEFT button press, the microcontroller disables the power bridges after a smooth stop
if the motor is running at minimum speed or halves the motor speed if the motor is running
above minimum speed.
Even if the “Daisy Chain” mode is supported in the L6470 FW library, the L6470 Discovery
board HW does not allow it. Please contact ST support if you want more information on
“Daisy Chain” mode testing or implementation.
The FW L6470 library consists of the following files:

General description
Create a project using the FW library package
Using your preferred IDE, create a new project.
In project options, properties or settings,

Select for the device, the ST STM32F105xB.

Use the CMSIS library.
Edit the preprocessor defined symbols and add:

STM32F10X_CL

USE_STDPERIPH_DRIVER

ST_DSPIN_6470H_DISCOVERY
Edit the preprocessor include directories and add:

$PROJ_DIR$\…\…\…\…\…\…\stm32f10x\CMSIS\CM3\DeviceSupport\ST\STM32F10x

$PROJ_DIR$\…\.…\…\…\…\…\stm32f10x\STM32F10x_StdPeriph_Driver\inc

$PROJ_DIR$\…\…\…\…\…\dspin\inc
Where $PROJ_DIR$ is a variable containing the path to the project directory.
Add the required library source files:

startup_stm32f10x_cl.s

system_stm32f10x.c

misc.c

stm32f10x_exti.c

stm32f10x_flash.c

stm32f10x_gpio.c

stm32f10x_rcc.c

stm32f10x_spi.c

stm32f10x_tim.c
For the debugger, for example, select the ST-LINK and configure it to run to main, to verify
download, to use the Flash loader and to override the default *.board file with the
FlashSTM32F105xB.board.
