The TMC211 evaluation board makes it possible to evaluate the features of the TMC211 stepper motor controller and driver chip. The TMC211 evaluation board allows connecting the TMC211 chip to a power supply, a motor and a LIN master. The board is mainly intended for direct attachment to the Trinamic USB-2-X interface converter which allows easy interfacing of the evaluation board to a PC running under Windows 98/2000/XP via the USB interface. The evaluation board has particularly small dimensions. At just 74 mm x 60 mm, it can easily be connected with different types of stepping motors. The integrated screw terminals make installation easy; the PCB can be adapted to every type of motor. There is also an evaluation software running under Windows which allows easy evaluation of all the features provided by the TMC211 chip. The evaluation software needs the Trinamic USB-2-X interface converter to work. The TMC211 Evaluation Kit comes with a TMC211 Eval Board, USB-2-X adapter, programming and evaluation software for Windows OS (9x, XP, NT4.0, 2000), documentation, an USB cable and a stepper motor.
