This is a retired product. There is an updated version available: BOB-11611
Description: Replacement:BOB-11611. We’ve completely overhauled this board, go check out the new version now! This page is for reference only.
STMicro’s L6470 (a.k.a “dSPIN”) is a 3A, 8-45V bipolar stepper motor driver. It has built-in overcurrent detection, undervoltage detection, overtemperature detection, stall detection, a 5-bit ADC, and a switch input that can be used for either user jog control or as a hard stop function. As if that weren’t enough, it also features microstepping support (up to 128 microsteps per full step) and PWM drive voltage limiting.
Unlike most stepper motor drivers, the dSPIN is controlled over an SPI link. It has an on-board 16MHz oscillator which allows it to autonomously execute movement commands. That means no more counting steps in your code! It also supports customized acceleration and deceleration profiles to prevent jerky starts and stops. On-board registers track current speed and location.
This L6470 Stepper Driver Breakout makes it easy to put the dSpin to work in your project. Simply connect your motors and your SPI-capable microcontroller and get steppin'! The logic supply voltage supports both 3.3V and 5V I/O levels. Features: * Supports up to 128 Microsteps per Full Step * Over-Temperature Detect * Over-Current Detect * Under-Voltage Detect * PWM Drive-Voltage Limiting * SPI Controlled * On-Board Oscillator and Speed/Location Registers * Stall Detection * 5-bit ADC
