To start development, several supporting data is needed. A PCB design requires schematic symbols and footprints for the layout in the CAE tool format. Software development needs libraries and code examples in a common programming language, or as a project file for the used IDE.
The Trinamic Technology Access Package (TTAP) is a comprehensive collection of technical support information and tools for Trinamic’s chip and module solutions. The intention of TTAP is to simplify (physical) design-in and bring-up, and to speed-up firmware development.
For each of the Trinamic products, you can find the specific data such as CAE files, code examples, TMCL™ scripts, and data sheets. These documents are offered on the product pages themselves.
The TTAP is split into two sections - hardware and software. The hardware part is specific for each product and can be found on the detail pages at the product section. The software package is identical to all products and is described below.
The hardware section includes detailed descriptions of the evaluation boards and reference designs. Both are typically available as design files for the EAGLE PCB CAD tool. An overview of materials and minimum circuits is provided. To help with the integration of Trinamic chips into own board designs, each chip product comes with free libraries for the following PCB CAD tools: Altium Designer™, Mentor PADS™, Pulsonix™, and CadSoft EAGLE™.
Software is provided in terms of complete Eclipse™ projects for Trinamic’s evaluation board system as well as code snippets to support own firmware development and integration of Trinamic chip components. The software is written in C.
The evaluation board project demonstrates the usage of the TMC-API and can be used as a starting point for your own firmware development. It should be an example for you to simplify and speed-up firmware development based on hardware with TRINAMIC motion control IC’s.
These are the software packages you need in order to use the TMC-API in your project:
