Myths About Motor Control – Myth 3

Small electrical motors are ubiquitous. The human environment is being automated in an increasingly fast pace, driven by the desire for safety, security and health, fueled by an aging population in the highest developed countries, gadgets that go mainstream, and by new manufacturing trends that characterize the 4th Industrial Revolution. Every day, we see new, […]

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 […]
