The TOS-100 Arduino Stepper Driver shield is the most easy way to use the Trinamic TMC260
motor driver chip to drive a stepper motor with Arduino.
The TOS-100 is an Arduino compatible Shield capable of driving one stepper motor up to to 1.7A that utilizes the Trinamic Motion Control TMC260 motor driver chip. For added compatibility with other arduino shields, the TOS-100 allows you to choose nearly any pin for any signal.
The TOS-100 shield comes assembled with all SMD parts. The through the hole parts represent various options to assemble the shield and therefore do not come pre-soldered. To get the shield up and running you have to decide how you would like to assemble the shield and solder the appropriate parts.
The TOS-100 Arduino Stepper Driver Shield adopts the versatility of the TMC260 Stepper Motor Driver. It comes with various options to install the shield, connect the motor and provide power. The ability to connect any control pin of the TMC260 Stepper Motor Driver to any of the digital pins of the Arduino it is virtually compatible with any other Arduino shield out there. The motor can either be controlled by step & direction pins, as other well known stepper motor drivers or by SPI for a more precise control and less pins used.
The TOS-100 Stepper Driver comes with a complete Arduino Library to get you started as fast as possible.
