TRINAMIC Autonomous Stepper Motor Driver IC Streamlines Ease-of-Use

New level of Simplicity – Patented Technology Eliminates Low-speed Noise  The TMC2100 stepper motor driver IC, with integrated MOSFETs to drive RMS motor current to 1.2A, is distinguished by the extreme simplicity of its setup and operation. Configuring just seven pins on the IC enables the parameterization and feature selection for typical motor applications, without any […]


First print from TRAMS 3D-Printer Shield

For some weeks now we are working on our TRAMS 3D-printer shield – TRAMS is  a derivative of the popolar RAMPS shield for Arduino Mega Boards. TRAMS is based on 4 TMC5130 cDriver –  a Stepper motor driver with integrated ramp controller, so it offloads the AVR and reduces interrupt load to 10% of the original load. TMC5130 […]


First TRAMS prototype arrived today

Today the first protos of our new TRINAMIC RepRap Arduino Mega Shield (TRAMS) arrived – looking forward to having it operational in a few days. TRAMS is a derivative of the popular RAMPS board and is build to work with an Arduino Mega Board. We developed a Marlin variant that uses the internal ramp controllers of TMC5130 and thus relieves […]


Techno Frontier Exhibition, Japan 2015

Making inroads into the market in Japan At this year’s Techno Frontier exhibition in Tokyo metropolitan area, Trinamic made considerable headway with its strong lead in advanced and highly scalable motion control technologies that were presented by Trinamic’s distribution partner NDK Semiconductor at the Makuhari venue, 20.-22. May 2015. Trinamic’s stealthChop technology that drives stepper […]

TRICEOS – Start of new R&D Project

TRINAMIC and the Institute of Control Engineering develop method for energy efficient motor control. TRINAMIC and the Institute of Control Engineering of the Braunschweig Technical University, are working together in the TRICEOS project, a novel method for energy-efficient control of stepper motors without position sensors. The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for […]


TRINAMIC hosts EtherCAT Plug Fest in Hamburg

With a line of Slave Controller ICs TRINAMIC is intensifying its EtherCAT activities. Trinamic is member of the EtherCAT technology group since 2007 and has developed and marketed a variety of EtherCAT based motor controllers since then. In 2013 Trinamic signed a license agreement with Beckhoff for EtherCAT slave controller IP, and Trinamic is developing a […]
