How does perfect control feel?

Motor Controller as Body Parts.

ÖSSUR POWER LEG and TRINAMIC Motion Control at Cybathlon 2016
When motor control technology becomes a part of the human body, requirements for component size and the reliability of the control system are immeasurably increased. The completion of the first prosthetic leg with two active joints was made possible in a short time thanks to integrated FOC control system components – just in time for the Cybathlon in Zurich.

Announcing new Stepper Motor Drivers

Noise levels at low speeds are eliminated with
cutting-edge stealthChop™ technology.

We are proud to announce the arrival of a new family of high-performance semiconductor components for stepper motor control. The TMC2208-LA and TMC2224-LA are monolithic components with integrated circuit breakers for up to 1.2A RMS and optimal power controllers for noiseless, sinusoidal control of the motor phases. Above all both components were designed with the goal of easy application in mind. 

"Developers are under increasing pressure to shorten development cycles and bring new products on the market faster", explains Michael Randt, founder and CEO of Trinamic. "Our new family of drivers has been specially developed to help making the development process as short and as simple as possible."

Enhanced by the flexible microPlyer interpolater unit, the components offer a resolution of up to 256 microsteps-per-full-step to achieve perfect sinusoidal control, even with low-resolution motion controllers. Further development of Trinamic's stealthChop technololgy, which was introduced two years ago, has all but eliminated motor noise at low speeds, making the precise control of stepper motors not only possible, but affordable for application in environments that demand absolute silence, e.g. office buildings and residential areas.

Due to the immense popularity of stealthChop technology, the components have been designed for compatibility with existing 3D printer electronics. With stealthChop there is no need for costly redesign.

Both components feature a step/direction source for fully autonomous operation. Configuration is achieved via digital inputs.
