TMC2160-EVAL

TRINAMIC Motion Control - TMC2160-Eval

The TMC2160-EVAL allows you to explore all functions of the TMC2160-TA.

The TMC2160-EVAL-KIT is a set of one MCU board Landungsbrücke, an Eselsbrücke bridge board and one TMC2160-EVAL driver board. It allows for a quick and simple start within only minutes to make your motor turning, while still providing full access to all registers and full functionality and diagnostics.

For diagnosis, all signals between MCU and TMC2160 are accessible with probes on the Eselsbrücke bridge board. To simplify the transfer to your own processor platform the MCU board can be disconnected.

All you need to get started is a power supply and Trinamic's free and easy to use TMCL-IDE. This graphical user interface allows quick setup and supports the use of commands in direct mode, monitors real-time behavior visualized in graphs, and logs and stores data. All settings can simply be exported for your own firmware project.
