Description

• SERPENT I is H-Bridge DC Motor controller/driver based on power MOSFET transistor IRF3710. SERPENT I is an independent solution which could be easily used with any currently available embedded system development board. SERPENT I does not provide any predefined connector except screw connectors. Instead, matrix 4x8 provides a generic solution in order to build right adapter connectors for target development board.

• The controller contains two parts. The first part is related to control devices, like microcontrollers, processors, SoC, development boards, without physical connection with second energy part composed of four power MOSFETs configured as an H - bridge. The communication between the control and energy part is done over the opto-isolated devices 4N25 with a guaranty that control devices are safe against high currents from energy part.

• Opto-isolated inputs are implemented as open anode while opto-isolated cathodes are hardwired to the control device ground. Beside power MOSFETs, energy part contains CMOS integrated circuits as control logic to drive power MOSFETs gate drivers implemented with LM393 comparators. Regarding functionality, SERPENT I provide enable/disable signal, bi-directional control and PWM signal for DC motor speed and torque control.

• The DC motor driver is implemented with through-hole technology and could be assembled with standard soldering irons. SERPENT I is applicable for all kinds of DC motor controller systems, embedded robotics and Internet of Things (IoT). Beside that it is also applicable to drive DC to AC inverters. There are two SERPENT I editions: PCB DIY Kit and assembled version.
