The SilentStepSticks are stepper motor driver boards for 2-phase stepper motors. Each one based on a Trinamic motor driver chip, they are hardware compatible with other stepsticks and Pololu A4988 stepper motor drivers. Their features and benefits have made them popular drop-in components for 3D printers and CNC machines for a quick and easy upgrade.

Easy to Program

Writing extensive lines of code is a thing of the past with Trinamic Motion Control Language (TMCL). All that's needed instead is to set your parameters in Trinamic's intuitive user interface and export them as code snippets for direct integration into your application or store them directly on the product itself for standalone operation. For a quick start, you can download sample codes or watch one of the How-To videos.


Short for Trinamic Motion Control Language - Integrated Development Environment, the TMCL-IDE is Trinamic's free and easy to use tool for developing standalone applications. It allows anyone to translate digital information directly into commands for perfect physical motion.


Together with the TMCL-IDE and your Evaluation Kit, Trinamic's GitHub repository completes your motion control toolkit. It contains additional design resources and application programming interface to make your project as easy as possible.

How-To Videos

A selection of Trinamic videos and blog posts show you how to get started with different products. Did you know you can even use an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, a couple of wires, and one of the Evaluation Boards to drive a stepper motor?



All Evaluation Kits and SilentStepSticks are based on proven open-source designs, including the Landungsbrücke interface board. Simply download the files for a quick design-in, and your project will be ready in no-time. The designs reduce testing and prototyping to a minimum, allowing for quick testing with the minimum amount of components needed.
