TRINAMIC support for open source yields Arduino-based techno-art installation Hamburg-based software engineer and Android enthusiast Alex Weber has ported Der Kritzler (the Scribbler) to TRINAMIC’s open source Arduino Shield TOS-100. Der Kritzler is a techno-art installation that draws images on windows or walls using a TMC2660 motion controller, which is the key component of the […]
New Device Minimizes Lifetime Cost of Ownership for Cost-Sensitive Designs TRINAMIC Motion Control announced the world’s lowest cost single-axis motion controller IC. The new TMC4210 motion controller performs all real-time position and velocity stepper motor calculations, relieving a host microcontroller from the software design complexity required to implement a motor control system. TRINAMIC Motion […]
Integrating Pre-Driver and MOSFET Amplifiers, New IC Offers Lowest Power Dissipation for 4A Stepper Motors TRINAMIC Motion Control expanded the company’s existing product line of micro-stepping motor drives with a new IC that supports motor drive currents up to 4A. The new TMC2660 integrates both a pre-driver for real-time calculation of motor coil current values, […]
As a demo for our TOS-100 Arduino stepper motor shield Alex from tinkerlog.com built one of his cool kritzler devices for our Office. Kritzler as well as TOS-100 is a completely open source hardware.
The TOS-100 is an Arduino compatible Shield capable of driving one stepper motor up to to 1.7A that utilizes the Trinamic Motion Control TMC260 motor driver chip. For added compatibility with other arduino shields, the TOS-100 allows you to choose nearly any pin for any signal. TOS-100 Arduino Stepper Motor Shield is developed by Marcus […]
Thanks to Wolfgang Hoffman an open source stepRocker™ programming tool for Linux is available now on Github now.
The first TMCM-1110 stepRocker stepper motor controller boards have been presented at the SPS IPC DRIVES 2011 in Nuremberg. StepRocker is an open source hardware platform with TMC262 stepper motor driver and TMC429 motion controller. Both hardware and firmware are open source. TMCM-1110 stepRocker is meant to be an lowcost and easy entry in stepper motor […]
