TMC5160 Stepper Motor Controller and Driver IC

TRINAMIC's TMC5160 is a single-axis stepper motor driver IC with serial communication interfaces

Image of TRINAMIC's TMC5160 Stepper Motor Controller and Driver ICTRINAMIC's TMC5160 is a high-power stepper motor controller and driver IC with serial communication interfaces. It combines a flexible ramp generator for automatic target positioning with an advanced stepper motor driver. Using external transistors, highly dynamic, high torque drives can be realized. Based on TRINAMIC's sophisticated spreadCycle™ and stealthChop™ choppers, the driver ensures absolutely noiseless operation combined with maximum efficiency and best motor torque. High integration, high energy efficiency and a small form factor enable miniaturized and scalable systems for cost effective solutions. The complete solution reduces learning curve to a minimum while providing high performance.
