Guest Blog: UBC Thunderbots
UBC Thunderbots is an engineering design team at the University of British Columbia, where students create and compete with autonomous soccer-playing robots. Since the team began in 2006, we have been continuously improving our robots so we can then compete on the international level at the annual RoboCup competition. After years of hard work, we […]
Guest Blog: TURAG
For more than ten years, students at the Robotics Working Group of the Technical University of Dresden, or TURAG for short, have been developing mobile robotics solutions independently for participation in national and international competitions. The Eurobot robotics contest, which is held once a year in France, is the main motivation for the working group. […]
Guest Blog: School of Engineering Telecom Physics University of Strasbourg
Sponsoring Video The group of students explains in this video how they created a robotic demo for our companies minion line of integrated circuits. For that, they used our TMC-7300 motor driver.
Pushing the Limits of Stepper Motor Control in 3D Printing
Guest blogger Jan Kotarski explains how even a few volts of difference will improve operation of a stepper motor driver in 3D printing.
Additive Manufacturing in Space
To reduce the cost of space missions, team AIMIS-FYT decided to build a 3D printer for zero-gravity environments. The result is a cartesian-style 3D printer that prints and cures resin.
Driving a linear stage with the TMC4671 – Firmware Adaptation
In our last blog post, we were able to determine stable P-I-parameters for our cascaded controller loop. With that knowledge in mind I want to show you how I created a small example program which I will include in the firmware of the Landungsbrücke. What this code basically does is initializing the TMC4671 for stepper motor control. This is done in init_Basics(…) by writing several […]
