Dependable Building Blocks

Rapid technological improvement leads to increasingly complex development. Well-designed ICs with a comprehensive design package including proven reference designs, evaluation-boards, CAD symbols and sample code build the foundation of your design.

Stepper Driver ICs

Trinamic’s monolithic stepper motor drivers build powerful integrated systems by integrating a state of the art microstepping sequencer and power drivers. By reducing the number of external components required, Trinamic stepper drivers allow for smallest systems.

Using the lowest RDSon TrenchFET switches Trinamic’s multi-chip stepper drivers reduce power loss and do not require heat-sinks in their full specified current range. This decreases both the system's power consumption and the total system cost.

Controlled Stepper Driver ICs (cDriver™)

Trinamic’s cDriver™ is an integrated solution with a motion controller and driver in one single device, translating digital information into physical motion. It combines a sophisticated ramp generator for automatic target positioning with the industries most advanced stepper motor driver. Being highly integrated and energy efficient, the small cDriver™ enables miniaturized and scalable systems for cost-effective solutions.

For all applications, like surveillance cameras, office automation equipment or infusion pumps, that require multiple dependable motors but small build volume, dual axis cDrivers are the perfect solution.

MotionCookies™

MotionCookies™ are Systems in a Package (SiP) that get the job done. Just add external MOSFETs for a complete motion control system.

We developed the “cookies” to address the fast growing group of customers who do not want to design their system from scratch, but still want to design their own board. The cookies bundle the performance of Trinamic ICs with proven Trinamic firmware. And the best thing: The product can be customized easily and without additional NRE. Firmware as well as label can be customized.

Longevity: The footprint of the component will not change for decades, even if the internal microcontroller changes due to shrinking.

Industrial Ethernet ICs

EtherCAT® by Trinamic: Industrial strength.

Trinamic makes some of the most advanced motor drivers and dedicated motion controllers available. However, there is the need to synchronize drives, and sometimes CAN and RS-485 just don’t cut it: Speed and real-time performance guarantee precision in synchronized motion.

Why did we start to do our own EtherCAT slave controller ICs and what do we mean with "industrial strength"? > Learn more <

Evaluation Kits

For all our ICs, we offer Evaluation Kits so you can start development out-of-the-box. Just connect motors and a computer, start the TMCL-IDE, and with a few clicks of the mouse the motor is running. Evaluation of product features is now possible without a single line of code.
