Trinamic's TMC5160-Eval with an Aruidno Mega

Explore and tune StallGuard2 with the TMC5160-EVAL + Arduino Mega 2560 in step and direction mode

In this blog article we wire up a Arduino Mega2560 with a TMC5160-EVAL board to run in it STEP/DIR mode, use a timer to generate a fixed frequency for the STEP input. The diagnostic diag0 output pin of the TMC5160 will be used to indicate a defined load condition we want to react on. In […]

Online Reference Design Cloud with Trinamic Components

From evaluation kits to open-source breakout boards and easy to use building blocks, we always try to help our customers where we can. This also means making documents accessible. Not only datasheets and application notes, but also reference design schematics to give engineers fast design starts. Miniaturization is one of the megatrends influencing application design, […]

Taking motion control to the next level with RISC-V

By embedding RISC-V processor cores into our products, we’re pushing motor driver ICs to the next level. It’s a huge step forward, allowing you to create superior products faster than ever before with the new ROCINANTE family. During electronica, Trinamic unveils its new family of motor drives with an embedded RISC-V core, dubbed ‘Rocinante’.  Components […]

Tl-Smoother Diagram

TL-Smoothers, do they make sense?

So, after our first blog post, which you can read here, Watterott kindly pointed out to us that our post didn’t make sense, so we looked at TL-Smoothers for 3D printers again. Turns out, our explanation of TL-Smoothers doesn’t apply to TL-Smoothers, since these small boards don’t use freewheeling diodes. Instead – and to our […]
