Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. You can also solder your motor leads and other connections directly to the board. A version of this board with headers already installed is also available. This stepper motor driver lets you to operate bipolar stepper motors in full-, half-, quarter-, eighth-, and sixteenth-step modes, with an output drive capacity of up to 35 V and 2 A. Also, note that you will need to perform this adjustment again if you ever change the logic voltage, Vdd, since the reference voltage that sets the current limit is a function of Vdd. Motor connections Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. The coil current can be very different from the power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power supply to set the current limit.

A4988: DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection
The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below. During stepping operation, the chopping control in the A automatically selects the current decay mode, Slow or Mixed.
More generally, microstepoing anything while it is powered is asking for trouble. The chip has three different inputs for controlling its many power states: In particular, increasing the voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since the current can change more quickly in the coils after each step.
This product can get hot enough to burn you long before the chip overheats. Allegro’s products are not to be used in life support devices or systems, if a failure of an Allegro product can reasonably be expected to cause the failure of that life support device or system, or to affect the safety or effectiveness of that device or system. Navigation Main page product Experiment Tutorials.
The newer A offers overcurrent protection and has an internal k pull-down on the MS1 microstep selection pin, but it is otherwise virtually identical to the A A microstepping driver such as dmow A allows higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, a498 are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels.
These supplies should have appropriate decoupling capacitors close to the board, and they should be capable of delivering the expected currents peaks up to 4 A dmo the motor supply. The A is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation.

Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. Retrieved from ” http: Note that the STEP and DIR pins are not pulled to any particular voltage internally, so you should not leave either of these pins floating in your application. The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0. N header pins soldered? Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5.
Also, note that you will need to perform this adjustment again if you ever change the logic voltage, Vdd, since the reference voltage that sets the current limit is a function of Vdd. For instance, driving a motor in quarter-step microsteppjng will give the step-per-revolution motor microsteps per revolution by using four different current levels.
Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. The translator is the key to the easy implementation of the A Free add-on shipping in USA. Internal synchronous rectification control circuitry is provided to improve power dissipation during PWM operation.
Some unipolar stepper motors e. This product ships mdos packaged with 0. For customers interested in higher volumes at lower unit costs, we offer a bulk-packaged version without header pins and a bulk-packaged version with header pins installed.

The coil current can be very different from aklegro power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power supply to set the current limit. The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2.
In Mixed decay mode, the device is set initially to a fast decay for a proportion of the fixed off-time, then to a slow decay for the remainder of the off-time.
This carrier board uses low-ESR ceramic capacitors, which makes it susceptible to destructive LC voltage spikesespecially when using power leads longer than a few inches. Since the input voltage to the driver can be significantly higher than the coil voltage, the measured current on the power supply can be quite a bit microsteppibg than the coil microostepping the driver and coil basically act like a switching step-down power supply.
