Controller IC for Power Driver

01/14/2015 1:30 AM

We know power driver for stepper motor can only give us half/full step controls. but with continuous running. for limited or inching or scale type of to and fro movements latest IC's are available can anybody suggest the one that he might have used regularly?

Micro stepping of a stepper motor is a very old technique. There certainly are many companies that do this. Still there are many people disappointed with micro stepping results because it more often than not reveals their kinematic misunderstandings long before the real limitations of micro stepping are relevant.

I made the mistake some years ago in thinking micro stepping could improve the accuracy of a positioning application in conjunction with a linear encoder.

I'm not sure what you're asking. What power level? Do you seek a circuit component or a drive package?
