Motion Control and Interface ICs

 

Dedicated motion and interface controllers for stepper motors offload the MCU from real-time critical tasks, calculating ramping and positioning in proven, integrated hardware that's safe and secure. The single bi-directional interface SPI for motion commands and diagnostics keeps the count of required lead traces low, enabling extremely miniaturized and lean designs. Some also support S/D to simplify control of stepper motors.
