Modular Evaluation System

Get started with your design with the Landungsbrücke Evaluation Kit and choose from a variety of motor and motion control evaluation boards.

Modular Evaluation System

Whatever your application, start your design easily using Trinamic's Landungsbrücke evaluation kit. Each EVAL KIT gives you direct access to all registers using Trinamic's own software, allowing you to develop your own firmware.

Besides EVAL KITs, most Trinamic chips are also available as breakout boards. These BOBs contain everything that's needed for rapid prototyping and can be used on a breadboard or with flying wires, as all sensitive signals such as sense lines are routed on the BOBs themselves. Moreover, the BOBs are open-source, meaning you can copy the design and tweak it to your own specific needs.

Test and compare different options - creating new applications has never been this easy.

From Prototype to Production

Shorter time-to-market requires reduced design cycles.

Rapid technological improvements lead to increasingly complex development processes. Well-designed ICs with comprehensive design packages including proven reference designs, CAD symbols and sample code build the foundation of your design.

Open Source Hardware

Open-source hardware shares much of the principles and approach of free and open-source software.

We believe that customers should be able to study our designs, understand how they work, adapt, and use them as appropiate in their projects.

As part of the Trinamic philosophy, we release all original design files of our evaluation boards. What's more, embedding Trinamic reference design in commercial products does not require you to disclose or open-source your own design.

Software

The software is the key bringing hardware to life. All boards from the Landungsbrücke evaluation system are supported by the TMCL-IDE.

From a register browser to parameterization assistants, the IDE is your tool to get started. Just connect motors and a computer, start the TMCL-IDE, and with just a few mouse clicks your motor is running.

Regardless of your MCU and programming style, a comprehensive API package guides you to develop your own firmware. Routines from low-level register access to kinematic calculations pave your way to controlled motion.
