The TMCM-101 is a single axis 2-phase stepper motor controller and driver module. The built in encoder feedback makes it an optimum solution for high-reliability drives. It provides a complete motion control solution at a very small size for embedded applications. The board can be connected to a baseboard or customized electronics with a pin connector. The TMCM-101 comes with the PC based software development environment TMCL-IDE for the Trinamic Motion Control Language (TMCL™). Using predefined TMCL high level commands like "move to position" or "constant rotation" rapid and fast development of motion control applications is guaranteed. The TMCM-101 can be controlled via the serial UART interface (e.g. using a RS-232 or RS-485 level shifter) or via CAN. Communication traffic is kept very low since all time critical operations, e.g. ramp calculation, are performed on board. The TMCL™ program can be stored in the on-board EEPROM for stand-alone operation. The firmware of the module can be updated via the serial interface. With the optional stallGuard™ feature it is possible to detect motor overload or motor stall. The TMCM-101 is compatible to the TMCM-series of credit card sized module, but has an increased height of 70mm.
