Open loop stepper

Open loop stepper system integrated circuits and reference designs


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create compact, robust and efficient open loop steppers with accurate high-resolution, micro-stepping and smooth torque profile. Integrated microstep indexer and current control with smart tuning accelerate time to market.

Open loop stepper drive systems often require:

  • Efficient small form-factor hardware protected power stage with fault feedback.
  • Integrated microstepping indexer with stall detection.
  • Flexible decay modes for smooth torque and high resolution microstepping.
  • Input protection against reverse polarity and overcurrent.
