How to drive a stepper motor closed loop with your Arduino Uno using a TMC4361A-EVAL + TMC2130-EVAL

Today we will wire up a TMC4361A-EVAL + TMC2130-EVAL combination to drive a stepper motor closed loop with an Arduino Uno. The encoder used for this test has a resolution of 10.000 cpr respective a resolution of 40.000. Preparation For this tutorial the Eselsbruecke got a soldered connection between +5V_USB (pin 5) to +5V_VM (pin […]

How to drive a stepper motor with your Raspberry Pi 3/2 using a TMC5130-EVAL

In this start up guide you get explained how to connect your Raspberry Pi 3 or 2 for the basic operation of the TMC5130-EVAL board. It will use the internal Motion Controller and +3V3 logic supply for the TMC5130. The wiring will be limited to the basic functionallity to communicate via SPI. The internal CLK […]

How to drive a stepper motor with your Arduino Mega using a TMC5130-EVAL

Only a few wires including an SPI port are required to control TMC5130-EVAL with your Arduino. Here are the few steps required to get started. Preparation If your Arduino  is a 5V type you have to resolder one resistor on the TMC5130-EVAL from position R3 to R8. This sets the logic level of the TMC5130 to +5V. While by default […]
