Closed loop stepper

Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create compact, robust and efficient closed loop stepper motor drives with high-resolution positioning, accurate torque and smooth motion from zero to high speed. Multiprotocol industrial interfaces ensure easy control through the PLC or industrial PC.

Design requirements:

Closed loop stepper drive systems often require:

  • Small form factor, efficient and protected power stage with fault feedback.
  • Advanced digital processing for smooth and accurate closed-loop control.
  • Accurate angle and current feedback sense for high-resolution micro-stepping.
  • Robust, low latency industrial interfaces with high EMC immunity.
