A 3A, 8-45V bipolar stepper motor driver - this breakout packs a mean punch for it's size! It has built-in overcurrent detection, undervoltage detection, overtemperature detection, stall detection, a 5-bit ADC, and a switch input, microstepping support and PWM drive voltage limiting.

Description [Hide]

Unlike most stepper motor drivers, the dSPIN is controlled over an SPI link. It has an on-board 16MHz oscillator which allows it to autonomously execute movement commands. That means no more counting steps in your code! It also supports customized acceleration and deceleration profiles to prevent jerky starts and stops. On-board registers track current speed and location.

This L6470 Stepper Driver Breakout makes it easy to put the dSpin to work in your project. Simply connect your motors and your SPI-capable microcontroller and get steppin'!

The logic supply voltage supports both 3.3V and 5V I/O levels, but an external regulated chip supply needed (easily tapped off most development boards)

Designed for use with bipolar stepper motors such as the 42BYGHW811 NEMA-17 Bipolar.


  • Supports up to 128 Microsteps per Full Step
  • Over-Temperature Detect
  • Over-Current Detect
  • Under-Voltage Detect
  • PWM Drive-Voltage Limiting
  • SPI Controlled
  • On-Board Oscillator and Speed/Location Registers
  • Stall Detection
  • 5-bit ADC
  • 8-45V motor voltage input supply range
  • 3A(rms) max. current rating (pulsed current up to 7A)
