Dependable Building Blocks

When digital information can be transformed into precise physical motion, previously infeasible use cases suddenly become possible: Advanced robotics, Internet of Things, additive manufacturing, prosthetics, and IIoT, to name just a few. Trinamic's proven hardware building blocks embody decades of experience, making motion control as easy as 1-2-3. The well-designed integrated circuits come with proven reference designs, evaluation boards, and all the documentation needed to get started.

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.

MotionCookie™ System-in-Package

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.
