What is wrong here? I am trying to drive a stepper motor using the ulna as an interface to MCU. I haven’t connected the motor yet. I want to make sure it will not burn the MCU. Inside the ULN there are darlington transistors with an open collector, so without some external circuit the output will not be pulled up to some higher voltage.
The COM pin is connected to a freewheeling diode for each transistor, so you can connect it to the positive rail to protect against overvoltage, for example for inductive loads. The ULN can only sink ma as you stated. It will not handle the ma required by the motor. You can parallel the inputs and outputs however on the ULN to increase the current. For example if if were to tie two inputs to the micro output, then tie their respective outputs to the motor connection then the current will almost double.
See the data sheet for the current curve plot showing duty cycle with current vs number of drivers on. If you use ULNA instead it has 8 drivers. You can drive either chip directly from the MCU output without using a current limiting resistor.
The resistor is within the chip.
IC – ULN2003A (High Voltage & Current Darlington Transistor Arrays)
Start with the stepper and the ULNA. With the ULN inputs floating the outputs should be pulled up uln22003a the stepper coils. If not remove the ULN.
If still not high there is something fishy with the stepper. If High now, you have a problem with the ULN. If not, there is a problem with the ULN. Whether the stepper will work at all at 9V is another question. You can try that manually by energising the coils in the appropriate sequence. As for the ARM, try first whether you can switch the pin s high and low without anything connected.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Ulnn2003a it safe to drive the motor at 9V with ULNa? Got the grounds of the 2 supplies connected together?
Dean yes, I did. I am not sure what the COM pin’s function is.
I read the datasheet, but I dont find ul2n003a info in it. Pin 8 is the GND. Then pin 9 which i think your referring to enables the common freewheeling diodes. The outputs are “open collector”. How do you have the outputs connected?
If you post a schematic it would be helpfull. You need pull-up resistors on the outputs or whatever load you want to drive.
I want to drive a stepper motor with this ulna IC. Do I have to connect any resistors at input pin to protect the MCU pins from getting fried? How do I give supply to the stepper motor? No, the base resistors are included in the ULNA. SteveR 1, 8 While I can imagine you can increase current I’m not sure you can presume the current is always evenly distributed between the two outputs.
