Filtered PWM in Analog Mode


If you are using a filtered PWM signal from a microcontroller to generate the analog voltage, an R/C filter with component values 10k ohms and at least .1uf is recommended, as shown in the attached figure.

Using a larger value filter capacitor such as 1uf or 10uf will result in smoother motor operation, at a cost of slower transient response. A PWM frequency higher than 1000Hz is recommended.
