While designing some mechanical projects we often have need for easy to build motor speed controllers. Thanks to the SGS-THOMSON Microelectronic’s TDA7274, now we have easy to build, low voltage D.C motor speed controller. TDA7274 provides wide operating voltage range from 1.8V to 6V and in this project we use it to drive small CD-ROM ejection motors.

In this project we design entire speed controller with 39.3mm × 28.9mm PCB. While at the prototyping we test this system with 5V power source and successfully control several CD-ROM ejection motors, cassette motors and toy D.C motors.
