TMC2209 Stepper Motor Driver IC

Stepper Motors are the workhorses of several industrial, robotic as well as consumer / office electronics. It rotates in ‘steps’ and helps you achieve a precise positioning of the motor’s shaft. They are also brushless motors but unlike BLDC Motors, the drive electronics for a stepper motor is very simple. Speaking of drives, the TMC2209 … Read more

Basics of DC Motor Power Density

This article is part of the Power Management Series: Delving Into Power Density Members can download this article in PDF format. What you’ll learn: Specifics about high-power-density motors (HPDMs). Applications best served with HPDMs. Why BLDCs are perhaps the most preferred among HPDM architectures. High power density is an important characteristic in most motors, even … Read more
