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.
EtherCAT is the high-performance, low-cost, and easy to use industrial Ethernet technology with a flexible topology. Using Trinamic's EtherCAT Slave Controller ICs, this powerful interface can be combined with leading-edge motor and motion control. The chips connect peripherals optimized for embedded motion and motor control applications to the fast fieldbus, allowing for accurate synchronization of distributed drives.
MotionCookie™ SiPs are ideal when you want to design your own board without starting completely from scratch. Just add external MOSFETs for a complete motion control system, or combine it with an EtherCAT slave controller for optimized real-time capabilities. Saving precious resources during development, the System-in-Package bundles the performance of Trinamic's industry-leading ICs with proven firmware.
Trinamic's servo controller chips are key in industry-leading applications with synchronous drives. Featuring field oriented control integrated in robust building blocks, the controller ICs allow for quick implementation of dynamic servo systems. With all time-critical calculations in hardware, the fully integrated servo controller ICs significantly reduce development time for applications with outstanding dynamics.
BLDC motors are increasingly being used in EMC-critical applications and applications with the highest requirements for energy-efficiency. Due to their sinewave commutation, BLDC motors form silent and efficient drives for heating and ventilation. Equipped with a high-resolution feedback system and field oriented control, Trinamic's 3-phase predriver ICs are the best solution for powerful drives.
Trinamic's DC motor driver ICs integrate a highly efficient power stage with internal charge pump, delivering best-in-class RDSon resistance. Even at low supply voltages, the tiny motor driver chips provide high current for best results. With full control via UART, protection and diagnostics allow for robust and reliable operation of DC drives, supporting cost-effective system designs with efficient and reliable operation.
Small, silent, precise, and extremely efficient with a standby current draw of <50nA (typ.), Trinamic's battery-powered motor drivers set the standard for IoT, home automation, and handheld devices. Together with the lowest-in-class RDSon of LS 170mΩ and HS 170mΩ (typ.), these motor driver ICs save battery life like no other.
